Several West Michigan attractions will allow their members to attend for free in October as part of the seventh annual Southwest Michigan Cultural Membership Exchange.
Initially scheduled to occur in May but postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the exchange includes six cultural attractions: Air Zoo, Binder Park Zoo, Gilmore Car Museum, Kalamazoo Nature Center, Kalamazoo Institute of Art and Kellogg Biological Station Bird Sanctuary and Manor House.
During October, members of these organizations can visit each attraction free of charge when they present a valid membership card and photo ID.
Each organization has put safety protocols in place in response to the pandemic, which visitors may view on the destinations’ websites. The punch card passports available in previous years will not be used this year.
The locations are all featuring special exhibits. These include a space exploration exhibit at the Air Zoo, a special muscle car display at the Gilmore Car Museum and the opportunity to experience fall colors at the Kalamazoo Nature Center.
To learn more about the full range of events and the locations’ COVID-19 safety precautions, visit swmimemberexchange.com or the websites of the six attractions.
