Kalamazoo Valley Museum

230 North Rose Street

There's always something happening for you at the Museum, whether you're a preschooler, a big kid, or grown up. Come by yourself or in groups. Programs for kids and families are hands-on, sometimes featuring a special performer. Preschool circle time programs are offered Monday through Saturday in Children's Landscape.

Adults will find lots to interest them in our Sunday Series lectures, Saturday night film series, concerts, and other discussions and lecture programs. Special activities abound for Scouts, churches, home schools and other groups wanting a focused experience. Many programs are free; check individual listings to find out more.

Cool place! Not literally. I think the a/c was broken. Really nice exhibits. Planetarium was awesome! Best part, free admission! Planetarium costs extra.

Great museum for the right price. Excellent exhibit on the second floor with the history of this area. The third floor had a dinosaur exhibit, which is a traveling exhibit, but really cool for the kids.

Our 8 year old loved it! The Kalamazoo history was interesting and the interactive displays were a big hit for child and parents. And the cost was free (gave donation on the way out)

Wonderful place to bring your kids to learn! FREE to get in (you just pay if you want to see their special presentations they are offering at the time). So much for the kids (and adults) to see and do while you're there. Tons of hands-on exhibits and activities that are all free.

Brought my nephew here for a day out and he had a blast! He was so excited and there was so much to do. We spent almost 4 hours there before we had to leave and there were still things that he didn't get to do!
