This was a wonderful find on a short trip to Grand Rapids. The museum was very kid-friendly, which I just happen to enjoy and appreciate. Got a student discount for the admission ticket, though be mindful that the parking lot costs. The museum overlooks the river and the carnival sits right on it - it's a beautiful sight inside and out. My favorite parts of the museum were the downstairs replica of a small town.

Happy to add another 5-star review! This is a true GR gem. Check out the hours, park on the street, walk between the MM house and the neighboring one into the visitors' center. Chat with one of the friendly docents, sign in, then watch the film - sounds boring, but it is not! The movie explains the history of the home and its renovation, which was done painstakingly and with enormous resources to restore this beautiful building to its former glory.

A quaint museum in a nice town -- and it's all free! My SO and I were lucky because when we were here the museum had a special Where the Wild Things Are exhibit. It was a history of Maurice Sendak's historic drawings, and how they evolved to become one of the most treasured children's books ever created. There were paintings and sculptures of everything, from cool lounge chairs to sewing desks to African-inspired pieces.
