Play Ball! Sports History in the Tri-Cities

May 20 - September 24, 2023

Here in the Tri-Cities, we love sports. In the summer, you can hardly take a step without seeing a match, race, or other athletic event taking place. Even in the depths of winter, residents of the Tri-Cities can be found enjoying a bit of skiing at Mulligan’s Hollow or shooting some hoops indoors at the gym. Sports have formed an important part of the social fabric of the Tri-Cities for residents in the last century and a half. This exhibition is a celebration of our area’s proud sports history from the late 1800s to the present.

Upcoming Exhibitions

  • Ferrysburg: 60 Years a City - August 25, 2023 to February 11, 2024

  • Ottawa County Outdoor Artists - February 23, 2024 to August 11, 2024

The museum has three different rotating exhibition spaces, in addition to our permanent installations on the first and third floors. These spaces are Centennial Hall, the Small Gallery, and the Mezzanine. Centennial Hall hosts a summer blockbuster exhibit from May to late September each year, and the other two spaces have exhibitions scheduled throughout the year. Above, you can find our upcoming exhibits schedule for all of these spaces. If you have any questions, please contact Exhibits Curator Kate Crosby at
