  • Cool place! Not literally. I think the a/c was broken. Really nice exhibits. Planetarium was awesome! Best part, free admission! Planetarium costs extra.
  • Wonderful place to bring your kids to learn! FREE to get in (you just pay if you want to see their special presentations they are offering at the time). So much for the kids (and adults) to see and do while you're there. Tons of hands-on exhibits and activities that are all free.
  • That's was awesome a lot of cool things. The dinosaur exhibit was great kids can play and have fun. Will visit often
  • Brought my nephew here for a day out and he had a blast! He was so excited and there was so much to do. We spent almost 4 hours there before we had to leave and there were still things that he didn't get to do!
  • My daughter and I had great time learning from the exhibits here. Great experience and it was free to get in. There are hands-on demos and plenty to read about. The cultural history of Kalamazoo is always a great exhibit to walk through. I would definitely recommend the Kalamazoo Valley Museum for anyone looking for a fun trip for younger children.
