Grand Rapids, Michigan: The Grand Rapids Public Museum (GRPM) just announced changes to open hours for 2018 starting this Saturday, January 6, including earlier hours on Sundays!

Starting this weekend, visitors can visit the Museum from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturdays and Sundays. This provides more opportunities for visitors to take advantage of the GRPM as the community hub for science, history and culture.

“We are excited to open earlier on Sundays for our visitors!” said Kate Moore, VP of Marketing & PR at the GRPM. “Based on visitor patterns we are shifting our hours to better accommodate our guests to be open when they want to visit us.”

The GRPM will be open 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday, and 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturdays and Sundays. For more information on upcoming exhibits, events and more, visit

The Museum will no longer offer their extended evening hours on Tuesday nights with plans to do more regular evening programming at the Museum, including the Concerts Under the Stars series and Beer Explorers.
