Summer hours are 9:00am – 4:00pm Monday-Thursday, and 9:00am – 12:00pm on Friday.

 

Thank you & Have a great week!

 

Come to the Union Depot Building (we have Selfie Stations!) or snap yourself having fun at your favorite Muskegon County attraction.

  Use our hashtag #VisitMuskegon when you share your photo!

  Throughout Summer we will search for #VisitMuskegon selfies (remember, we won’t see it unless it is public) on each Wednesday.

  Using random.org we will select someone’s smiling selfie to snag some Visit Muskegon swag!
