The following ASTC museums fall within 90 miles (as the crow flies) of the Grand Rapids Public Museum and therefore are excluded from the ASTC reciprocal program. They are: Alden B. Dow Museum of Science & Art – Midland, MI, Kingman Museum – Battle Creek, MI, Air Zoo – Portage, MI and USS Silversides Submarine Museum – Muskegon, MI. Please note that although Impression 5 Science Center in Lansing is within the 90 mile radius, they are included in the reciprocal program through a separate agreement.
