Calumet Visitor Center Reopening This Weekend

Now that the partial government shutdown is over, the Isle Royale National Park and the Keweenaw National Historical Park offices are open again.

Also opening is the Calumet Visitor Center, which will resume its winter hours of operation starting this weekend.  The center will be open from 11am to 4pm every Friday and Saturday through late May.

The Calumet Visitor Center is free and offers three floors of interactive exhibits about the history of copper mining in the Calumet region. Short films, audio-visual programs, and museum objects reveal the area’s geology and history. Exhibits reveal Calumet’s place on the national stage of copper production, and include the individual voices of local miners, teachers, and nurses who lived Calumet’s copper mining history.

It’s also a great place to start your Keweenaw adventure by mapping out the 21 official Keweenaw Heritage Sites, located from Ontonagon to Copper Harbor. Collectively, these sites offer infinite possibilities for exploring the Keweenaw history in the places where it happened. Park Rangers are on hand and happy to help you learn more about the region and plan your visit.

For more information about the Calumet Visitor Center or Keweenaw National Historical Park programs, contact the front desk at 906/337-3168, or check the web at www.nps.gov/kewe.
