As visitors to Kalamazoo, our teenage Girl Scout troop enjoyed a few hours learning about the history of the city at the museum. We also enjoyed its close proximity to restaurants and the park so we could walk everywhere.

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.
