Great place to spend the day with your kids. Lots of hands on things to do and a ton to learn along the way. Free admission only makes it better

Every time I go to this place, I have a blast. There is always history of some sort that is fascinating and something interesting for everyone. Very entertaining.

My 3 yr.old loved the museum. There is a bit of everything for every age group. Downtown location makes it event better, as the museum is close to restaurants and other attractions. Its a must when you are in Kalamazoo!

Took my granddaughter at four years old. She had a great time at the hands on area and enjoyed many of the other exhibits that are hands on. And it is free!!

I've visited this museum many times. My young children (ages 2 and 4) enjoy the kids area and all the interactive exhibits they have built into the rest of the museum, especially the music and the ice-cream parlor. We love that its free and kid-friendly. Great for a rainy or cold, snowy day.

My husband and I stopped in to this lovely museum. I actually did not have high expectations, but was blown away by this place! 3 floors of exhibits. Tons of interactive displays, for adults and kids. Highly recommend the Kalamazoo museum.

This has become a New Year tradition for our family, and our children are always eager to go back. We usually spend about 2-3 hours in the museum and I find something new every time. There is always a temporary exhibition, and the hands-on displays on the second floor keep our children occupied even as they grow older. They love... More

Our family was in Kalamazoo with my husband on business, so I took my kids (ages 3-11) here while he was at work. What a delight! We ended up coming back again the next day! We all loved the exhibits. The museum definitely didn't feel cheap, even though its free admission. Fun!

I took my two five year olds to see the Lego exhibit. We came for the Legos, but they both had such a great time exploring other exhibits as well that we spent the least amount of time looking at Legos. Our day was filled with hands on weather, music, learning and a mummy! Great time spent for no money.... More
