great fun for people of all ages. there's an admission for the new Air Zoo which has several rides and fun interactive attractions but that admission also includes entry into the older Air Zoo (which has been around for years) that houses at least two dozen war planes from various wars and many other pieces of memorabilia. Worth the trip.

This air museum is huge. Lots of indoor space, with many exhibits of aircraft from different eras. Some of the planes are quite rare. Free guided tours are available, lots of things for the kids to do, and plenty for adults to enjoy as well. We spent 3+ hours exploring all of the exhibits --- this museum leaves no space... More

The air zoo for me is all about the SR 71 Blackbird. It is the most amazing plane ever developed and holds multiple aviation records. There are many different jets and prop planes at the air zoo.

This is a great place for adults and children alike. There is a lot of history and there are fun things for kids to do. There is also a second building where restoration is done on airplanes. Currently they are working on a Wildcat that was in Lake Michigan for 78 years. It is a five year project to restore.

It can be hard to find outings that are equally engaging for our 3 kids -2,5 and 9 as well as mom and dad. The air zoo was perfect. There was a nice balance of educational materials and amusement activities. The lines for the attractions were not long and staff were friendly and welcoming. My only complaint is that some... More

I didn't think it would be as fun as it was when I first walked in but you have to try the simulator and the 4D movie theatre. My daughter and I had an absolute blast

If you're driving by and want to know "what there is to do" in Kalamazoo / Portage - come here! It's a child paradise and there is something for everyone in the family. Huge spaces, fantastic eye candy, indoor clean safe rides and low prices. Love this place!

I was impressed with this museum that is called a zoo. There were some nice rides for the kids and a lot of interesting planes and other exhibits for the grownups. It's clean and has the largest indoor mural in the world. It's definitely worth checking out if you are in the Kalazmazoo/Portage area.

We went the Air Zoo as a family for my birthday. My 3 yr old daughter absolutely loves airplanes and had so much fun. Especially enjoyed the room for small kids with toys and smaller rides.
