Something Extra

See six attractions with one membership

If you’ve been considering becoming a member of one of the area’s local cultural attractions, this is a good month to do it.

Members of one of six Southwest Michigan attractions can visit them all in May through the Southwest Michigan Cultural Membership Exchange.

The exchange is a collaborative effort of the Air Zoo, Binder Park Zoo, Gilmore Car Museum, Kalamazoo Institute of Arts, Kalamazoo Nature Center, and the W.K. Kellogg Bird Sanctuary & Manor House. It gives members of each institution free admission to all the others for the month of May with their member card and photo ID.

Membership prices vary from venue to venue. For more information, visit
