When thinking aviation history one does not often think of the Kalamazoo/Battle Creek Michigan area. That's a shame because the Air Zoo in nearby Portage is an incredible destination for those such as I who love to see history lovingly restored and displayed. The Air...More

It's 20 minutes away, but I haven't visited since attending a wedding at the Air Zoo five years ago. Wow! Have they changed! My daughter-in-law read their website and figured it would entertain her four-year-old and 18-month old for about an hour. They had a...More

This was so much more than we anticipated. Lots to see and learn with simulators and rides to entertain the children. Wonderful volunteers, very kind and anxious to help. We expected to spend 1-2 hours and spent twice that. Highly recommend for all ages.

It was our first time in Kalamazoo and we chose to visit the Air Zoo. The place was not jam packed with planes and jets (check out Wright Patterson Air Force Museum) but it had enough to satisfy all ages. They had a few carnival...More

Lots of restored airplanes from the last 100 years. Plenty of rides and activities to entertain kids and adults. It was not crowded at all. We enjoyed our time. It was worth the $15 entrance fee.

It's a very impressive museum! Their free tour guides are very knowledgeable. There are several hands-on mechanical stations that kids can play and learn. The cafeteria offered tasty food with good variety. It's a bit pricey, compared to regular fast food, but reasonable considering the...More
