Great place to learn about Kalamazoo history. More there than I thought there would be. The science area has lots of interactive things for kids to place with. Great place to teach the little ones something new while learning about the area.

A great museum to spend an afternoon with children. Has many hands-on display to teach children science e.g., heart rate, electricity generation, making a tornado. The Planetarium is great too.

A planetarium, exhibits about Kalamazoo history, the mummy, and friendly docents - what more can you ask for? IT'S FREE !!!! (I'm sending in a contribution because there is no such thing as FREE. Somebody has paid for it.)

I can't say enough about our museum. It's free unless you want to purchase some of the extra programs. We love it. So much to look at. Mystery of the Mummy has always been my favorite exhibit. Science in motion is another really cool exhibit....More

I can't wait to bring my grand kids to this museum although I also enjoyed it myself. It's very interactive and entertaining all while teaching valuable lessons. There is no admission fee except a small fee for the planetarium which is well worth it.

Fun museum especially for children. Lots of hands on activities and history of the local area. Planetarium is state of the art. Admission to the museum is free but there is a charge for the planetarium and a few special exhibits.

Nice free hands-on museum. There are 3 floors of exhibits, although the first floor has one exhibit hall and the planetarium. The planetarium show is only $3.00 and well done. The early show is aimed at younger children. There is plenty of parking near by.

While in Kalamazoo for a week with my husband while he was in training the kids and I explored. The museum was the best find for us. It kept us busy for a few hours. I would love to visit again.
