Kalamazoo Valley Museum

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.

This is one of my 5 year old daughter's favorite places to visit. She loves the revolving displays and is engaged in seeing what comes next. The activities are fun and for the whole family. A great place for adults and kids to always be learning something new. We do have a hard time with parking though. Haven't really found a good place to park where we don't have to walk a long distance, but I am not terribly familiar with downtown, so I may be missing something. This is a free museum, which is wonderful, but if you can drop a couple dollars in the donation box, please do. Let's keep this place around for a long time.

Pretty small. You could investigate the whole place on your first visit in around an hour. Of course, there's the other-peoples-kids factor. Got a nasty cold after visiting and touching what your kids have touched. Staff ought to be sanitizing more effectively.

I cannot believe how fun it was! I totally recommend this to families of all sorts. You will not regret going. I enjoyed the activities and innovations that were there. My favorite part was the little restuarant and news center.

A great little museum. We are very lucky to have this in Kalamazoo. Nice exhibits, traveling exhibits and a fun place to bring kids.

Wonderful place for all ages. Free admission and only $3 for the planetarium shows. Downtown location makes it easy to find. Third floor exhibits change every few months and are always interesting. Museum staff are knowledgeable and friendly.
