KALAMAZOO, Mich. (WOTV) There is always something going on to get the creative juices flowing at the Kalamazoo Valley Museum. The museum has three floors of free fun, with a focus on regional history and science technology. You can see the way people lived in Kalamazoo and the surrounding area and how they built the community.
There are so many opportunities for hands-on learning at the Kalamazoo Valley Museum. There is a science gallery and a planetarium with daily programs designed for people of all ages.
A favorite spot is the Challenger Learning Center. You can see what it’s like to be in a simulated space mission. Participants work together at different stations to complete a mission. One goal of the center is to promote teamwork and problem solving.
