If you’re looking for a fun way to escape the rainy forecast, check out the latest exhibit at Grand Haven’s own Tri-Cities Historical Museum: “Ice Age Imperials”. In this exhibit you can take a closer look at the life and the animals that inhabited the Great Lakes region thousands of years before us. This is an exhibit for all ages with information for adults on the formation of glacial ice and the lives of the inhabitants, as well as interactive elements for children, such as fossils, creating cave art, and hunting for artifacts. Be sure to check it out this summer before the end of August!

Also at the museum this summer special kids’ programs will be held on Wednesdays and Thursdays.

What is it Wednesdays: Check the front window of the Ekkens’ store exhibit to see a mystery artifact. For children 16 and under have a chance to win if they can guess what the artifact is. The prize is a $5.00 gift certificate to the museum’s gift shop to use on jewelry, clothing, artwork, photographs, and vintage, historical items.

Thursday’s History for Kids is a summer program held every Thursday at 10:00 am. Each week there will be a different topic and a “make-it-and-take-it” craft, along with a little bit of history.

Located in the heart of downtown Grand Haven at 200 Washington Avenue, the museum is open six days a week all year round and admission is FREE! This summer’s hours are 10:00am to 8:00pm Tuesday through Saturday, and Noon to 5:00pm on Sundays.
