“Check it out!”
Reviewed June 25, 2013

Enjoyed checking into this museum before we left town and enjoyed it a great deal! Best part of all...it's free to the public. Lots of hands on activities for young and old alike. Plenty of local history. Easy access and parking across street.

“PERFECT FOR THE KIDS”
Reviewed May 4, 2013

A FREE museum for everyone. Three levels of exhibits and the 2nd floor offers an awesome area for the kids to play and touch everything. We love going this to museum and the third floor changes every couple months and teaches kids about different countries or different themes. Awesome.

“A fun afternoon trip.”
Reviewed April 10, 2013

The kids love running up and down the stairs and seeing all the exhibits that are around the stairs. I really like the traveling exhibits that come through as they are interactive. There are normal exhibits too but they are most often geared toward slightly older children as young ones do not have the patience to read and/or listen to the explanations.

“Outstanding small town museum”
Reviewed March 16, 2013

Nice hands on exhibits for the younger set, and a nice historical area for the young at heart. Very well done, and FREE.

“Worth the time!”
Reviewed February 8, 2013 via mobile

We had a couple of hours to kill so we thought we would check out the museum. I was surprised to find no entrance fee! (They do accept donations, which I willingly did.) The museum is on 3 levels, but it has an elevator. The exhibits were informative and fun - many of them are hands on, which our child enjoyed. The planetarium wasn't showing anything during our visit, but I would gladly return to see a show when in the area. The museum is very clean and well maintained. It wasn't very busy, so our child had most exhibits to herself! I enjoyed the mummy exhibit, and our child loved the science area. If you are in Kalamazoo, this museum is worth a visit!
