  • Specially went to 3:00 planetarium show. Of "Dinosaurs at Dusk" - paid to see it. Trouble from the start as operator couldn't get it going. Very poor quality. Fuzzy images and 1/4 through it a portion...  read more »
  • The Kalamazoo Valley Museum is ultramodern in every way, from the new buildings housing the museum to the progressive staff members designing the exhibits. Most of the Museum's displays are interactiv...  read more »
  • A wonderful educational environment. Friendly, knowledgeable and helpful staff. Come visit the next time you are in town! 
  • Somewhat small, but free. This museum had a lot of entertaining and interesting exhibits to see! I wish I spent more time on the second floor which seemed to go on forever. In addition to the historical artifacts, much of the museum features artifacts highlighting Michigan's history. The kids museum section was also impressive! There were plenty of interactive displays and a play area for kids of all ages to play. Story time and other activities were also scheduled. My son could have spent the entire day here if I let him. If you're a local and since this is free, it's a no brainer to take advantage of the kids museum here!
  • My family and I absolutely love the museum here. And it's free!!! It is probably my 3 year olds favorite place to go, and they always have interesting new exhibits every few months that helps shake things up a bit. Right now they're doing a Lego exhibit and we've probably gone for that around 6 times already! But their regular exhibits are impressive themselves, it's a really good place for kids (and adults, too) to go to learn something new in a fun and hands on way. They also have a room on the second floor for kids under 5 to learn and play that is filled with books and puzzles and toys and we really love that, as well.
  • I love taking my grandkids there. They're eyes light up when I ask if they want to go because they have fun! They're young enough to not realize they're minds are learning and experiencing great things! A great museum well thought out and operated!
  • Wonderful place to take your kids if you haven't been there before. They don't change much and it's been pretty much the same for about 15 years to my knowledge but it's still a great place to go and have some fun and learn some new stuff.
  • Free fun and local history for the whole family. Young kids hands on play area with lots to do and many interactive displays. The planetarium has a fee but it's worth it, after the show, they will show you the current local sky.
