The Museum Cafe overlooks the Grand River and the city center, and offers homemade soups, snacks, salads, sandwiches, desserts and a daily special. Don’t forget to make time for a stop at the Curiosity Shop! The GRPM is centrally located in downtown Grand Rapids, across the street from the Gerald R. Ford Presidential Museum.
