“essential history lesson”

Kalamazoo Valley Museum
Ranked #1 of 39 things to do in Kalamazoo
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed September 15, 2012

I went there on my first ever visit to Kalamazoo and learned a lot about the area's prior economic history (windmills, celery, corsets, checker cabs...) as well as the various possible etymological origins of the town's name. It's not just a cheap way to while away a rainy afternoon. Kids will love it too, and entrance tickets are dirt cheap.

We all like planetarium the best. The Ancient Egypt display has been one of my favorite parts since I was a kid. The museum gets in all kinds of cool hands on exhibits that facilitate learning and fun...and super duper budget friendly!!

We always enjoy visiting this Museum when they have new exhibits. Nice thing to do on a rainy day.

The KVM does a good job of keeping the exhibits fresh and interesting, and my children always look forward to going there. Parking is easy, especially for a big family like mine, even though it's downtown, it's accessible and safe.
