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.

Great museum. Plenty to see. Hosts historical groups for local area. Has rotating exhibit area and mummy and space station on third floor. Great for kids, kids area is cute and great for the younger kids. Lots of interactive permanent exhibits. Planetarium is also amazing! Great for family and school outings.

Very nice little museum. We went to hear Laura Briley give an excellent Sunday afternoon talk on climate change. Very comfortable auditorium and we were able to borrow a wheel chair for my mom. Surprised there was no entrance fee for such a nice facility.

I come here often with grandchildren. It's free and can't be beat. Always something new and fun in three levels. The planetarium shows have a fee, but well worth it. Afterwards there is a playground, restaurants and a candy store or two to explore as well.

This is a fun museum. Informative, hands-on, and has a focus on Kalamazoo-area history and industrial development. Designed for both kids and adults

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.
