Owner description: The Grand Rapids Public Museum is a place of never-ending inspiration and discovery, with a focus on science, history and culture. We have three floors of core and traveling exhibitions, the Roger B. Chaffee Planetarium, a 1928 Spillman Carousel and a Mighty Wurlitzer Organ.

If you are in Grand Rapids visiting the Gerald Ford Museum, it is worth your time to cross the street and spend a little time at the Van Andel Museum as well. I found the area called "Furniture City" very interesting and informative......making us realize the part that furniture manufacturing has played in the history of Grand Rapids. I will always think of Grand Rapids when I think of office furniture:) There is also an old merry-go-round and an area that you can walk through which is like "Main Street' of times past. A nice little cafeteria on the second? floor overlooks the river.
