External and internal work on the historic Globe Building continues as crews transform the structure into the Michigan Department of Natural Resources Outdoor Adventure and Discovery Center. 

When the 43,000-square-foot Center opens late this summer, it will feature a variety of exhibits and programming opportunities.  Interactive displays will teach visitors how to use a real bow and arrow, sit in a blind, use a simulator to hunt wildlife, experience the sights and senses associated with camping, including the stars and nocturnal wildlife in the DNR’s night-time sky dome.


It is expected to become one of the most popular year-round attractions along the riverfront and a destination for thousands of visitors.
