This museum was close to the Radisson and in a lovely location downtown. Definetly visit the third floor Eygyptian mummy exhibit. Amazing to actually see this and watch the reconstruction of the mummy. I learned so much history of Kalamazoo. I am amazed. Extremly nice arrangements of archeology exhibits. AND IT IS ALL FREE!

It is FREE! We however did give a $2 donation. It is a nice little museum, only took us about an hour to go around but it was nice. Definitely something worth checking out!

This is a good local museum with many more exhibits than you would expect in a community this size. Also lots of things for elementary and younger through adults. Good free place to visit.

We were looking for something to do in Kalamazoo and found this wonderful free museum with lots of hands on experiences. There were interactive displays we've not seen before at any other museum. Great for kids and lots for adults to enjoy as well. I highly recommend stopping at this great little place in Kalamazoo!

I took my 2 year old granddaughter there and she had an absolute ball! The staff was very friendly and the museum is a treasure in the heart of downtown Kalamazoo!

This is a nice museum and it is free. We were there for two hours and did not get to see everything. We all really enjoyed the hands on activities. They also offered special crafts for kids during spring break.

There are many things to see and do in this museum that are free. We spent the day her and didn't pay an extra penny for anything. There is the option to pay for exhibits and other fun things but there was no need to the day we went. Exhibits change. Fun for kids of all ages.
