The Big Summer Reveal at the KVM

06/07/2013 to 06/09/2013 5:00 pm to 5:00 pm

Kalamazoo Valley Museum


There is no better way to “launch” into summer than our weekend-long event called “The Big Summer Reveal” from Friday, June 7th through Sunday, June 9th. This event, tied to the June Jubilee's wide-ranging downtown festivities, will begin on Friday night with a free concert featuring two blues bands.

On Saturday, the party continues with the unveiling of a new permanent exhibit, “The Moon Revealed.” The exhibit features a large 3D model of the Moon enhanced with fiber optic lights noting US landing sites. A computer provides historic footage of space flights and more. In keeping with the space theme, free planetarium shows and Challenger Learning Center space missions will be offered throughout the day. In celebration of the Museum's recent national accreditation, Moon Pies will be provided until supplies run out. Also, there will be a free Saturday musical performance along with other surprises.

On Sunday, free planetarium shows featuring moon or space themes will close out the weekend of celebration.
