Not much in the museum and the entrance fee is not worth what you get. The planetarium is pretty cool however and shows some interesting movies.

Maybe if the entrance fee was less and I didn't have to watch some creepy movie in the planetarium about made up future animals. Felt like I was on someone's bad drug trip. Not a lot to look at.

In Battle Creek for the worlds longest breakfast table event. Drove 2 hours so we thought we would look for some other things to do on a sunny June afternoon in Battle Creek.
We did walk the arboretum and thought we would swing into the museum. Luckily it was 1/2 price day and we paid $2.50 each. The staff were very friendly and helpful but the museum looks like it is stuck in the 70's. Very old, dated and poorly lit displays. If you are taking kids and wanting to do a grade school scavenger hunt, you may be ok. Otherwise, you will probably be disappointed. Small space, with lots of stuffed animals, some dinosaur bones and a few rocks.
Planetarium is available but we didn't stay. Wished it had been more interesting

I went here as a kid and have taken my kids. Great exhibits although most are the same as when I was a kid but it takes you back and shows that not everything has to be new and electric to be fun and interesting!
