The Grand Rapids Public Museum is the only cultural institution that captures the spirit of West Michigan through authentic, immersive and transformative experiences in education and entertainment.
We seek to inspire passionate curiosity and a deeper understanding of the world around us. We exist to be a living monument of artifacts, ideas and stories told through exhibitions, events and educational programming designed to inspire, motivate and celebrate our human bond. We enrich the life of our community through experiences of the wider world in a uniquely Grand Rapids context.
The Grand Rapids Public Museum is a not-for-profit educational organization that relies on annual, tax-deductible memberships and donations to fund its activities and programs. Your support helps us bring world class traveling exhibitions to Grand Rapids, helps us care for the Museum’s 250,000+ artifacts, and provides opportunities for thousands of children and adults of all ages to explore science, history, and culture.
