NPS's Calumet Visitor Center Changes Hours

(Calumet, MI) The National Park Service at Keweenaw National Historical Park announced that days and hours of operation for the Calumet Visitor Center will change after March 30. The Visitor Center will close on March 31 and will reopen May 23, following the winter break-up period. All utilities and services will be maintained at minimum levels during that time as a cost-saving measure. Beginning May 23 the facility will be open Tuesday through Saturday from 9:00 am to 5:00 pm through September 7. The park plans to keep the center open two or three days per week through the month of September as budget and staffing levels permit. Keweenaw Heritage Sites will maintain normal hours of operation throughout; consult the park newspaper.

During the closure, the NPS invites you to visit the park website – www.nps.gov/kewe – and to visit park headquarters, located at the corner of Highway US-41 and Red Jacket Road in Calumet. Upon re-opening the NPS will continue to provide orientation to the park and its partner Keweenaw Heritage Sites at the Calumet Visitor Center as well as a sales area for interpretive materials operated by the Isle Royale & Keweenaw Parks Association. The primary focus of the facility is the exhibit, Risk and Resilience: Life In a Copper Mining Community. The entire Copper Country community along with friends and family are encouraged to visit the free facility to enjoy the artifact-rich exhibit that provides a historical perspective of life in the Copper Country.

For more information please contact Keweenaw National Historical Park at (906)337-3168 or visit the park's website at www.nps.gov/kewe.
