Visited this air Museum and really liked the atmosphere. The place was clean, well kept up. The service people were very caring about the entire place and all of the exhibits. We saw a number of older planes and some DaVinchi concept items that were on display. We did expect to see more planes or other artifacts, but planes are... More

During a trip across the state, my wife and I dropped in for a repeat visit recently but were there just before closing time. It was still a chance to drop into the gift shop and take a quick look around. Things hadn't changed much from 2013 when we had last visited, but the Air Zoo is still a great... More

We're a military family, retired USAF. Went before the remodel and now after. Personally, I feel it's way over priced, just my opinion. Nice people for sure, clean facilities, etc. As far as the actual museum, lot's of planes, can't tour any of them. Rides are ok. My suggestion, go to an airshow, there one can walk through many different... More

We chose to swing over to the air zoo during our trip to south haven because it was a rainy day and I just so happen to love planes. Very glad we did. Our two little girls stayed very entertained with all of the rides as did I with their large assortment of planes that ranged from the earliest Davinci... More

Our 8 year old grand daughter says, "I loved it!" My husband says "it is on the level of the Smithsonian." Our teen grand daughter who wasn't all that interested in going says she enjoyed it! There were lots of rides. We were met by two WW II veterans who gave an excellent overview. Most staff interacted well with us... More

Our family went to the Air Zoo and had a fun time. The day we went it wasn't too busy and the lines were not long. The flight simulator was an enormous hit, and the kids went twice. I am not a plane enthusiast, but even I enjoyed myself as I looked at cool old planes and in the science... More

I would highly recommend a visit to the Air Zoo. People of all ages would find it interesting. The rides area for kids and teens is also a big hit.

Dozens of planes, very old and very new, famous black bird plane, space capsule replicas, extended historical facts, uniforms, World War one and two displays, role of women in the US Air Force, free guided tours by volunteers, a must if you are visiting Kalamazoo County, or even Michigan.

This was a great find. I wished I brought my daughter when she was younger. It is very educational for school age children. I enjoyed the Leonardo da Vinci exhibit. They did a great job showing all his inventions and ideas. It was worth going to see this exhibit. They had a lot of cool planes. Their NASA exhibit was... More
