We really enjoyed our visit to the museum and only wish we had more time to spend there! We brought our 17-year old and her boyfriend plus our 9-year old. Everyone enjoyed the time - it was a perfect way to spend the afternoon and keep the range in ages occupied and engaged. Very affordable!! My husband *loved* the Civil War exhibit and I got to ride the carousel with our kids :)

Other than the rotating exhibit this place is the same every time. This time the rotating exhibit was dinosaurs and it was very cool. Took about 20 minutes to go through. Not worth the parking fee and entrance fee. If you've never been here, I'd rate it 4 out of 5.

Nice museum that tells the history of Grand Rapids. Lots for the lids to see too. Love the carosel and the period displays.

A visit to Grand Rapids should include time for a visit to the museum. The exhibits are so well done and educational. The views of the river are beautiful and you can't miss the carousel!
