Days and Hours of Operation at the Calumet Visitor CenterThe Calumet Visitor Center at Keweenaw National Historical Park is open from Memorial Day through September 30, 2017, on a Monday – Saturday schedule from 9:00am to 5:00pm each day. Everyone is invited to visit this facility as you plan summer outings to local Keweenaw Heritage Sites or share our region’s history with visiting family and friends.
The 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.
The Calumet Visitor Center is located at 98 5th Street in downtown Calumet. For more information about the facility or Keweenaw National Historical Park programs, contact the front desk at 906-337-3168, or check the web at www.nps.gov/kewe.
