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.

Loved the museum! They are not afraid to admit that they need a lot of work towards diversity in their exhibits, as do most all museums, however once they have laid out everything that they are doing in order to achieve a diverse museum you will be impressed. Point and case: Jim Crow exhibit currently on display. Check it out, do not take young kids.

Some neat exhibits. But parking not very well managed .And would be a bit more interesting if things were slightly more interactive.

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.
