Yes, We’re Open! Discover Your Campus Museum Today

October 9, 2020

Craig Hadley
Dennos Museum Center

   While 2020 has been a whirlwind, I hope you’ll consider a visit to the Dennos Museum Center to relax, unwind, and enjoy a few quiet moments in between classes, work, and everything else. Your NMC student ID earns you FREE admission to the museum—simply show it at the front desk.
   Never been to the Dennos? There’s lots to see and do, and most of our visitors spend 1–2 hours when they visit. The museum offers a glimpse into Inuit life and culture with its stunning collection of stone-carved works on paper and carved sculptures, while the newly renovated permanent collection galleries offer up local, regional, and international artists as well. See famous artists such as Salvador Dali without even leaving Traverse City!
   Two new Michigan themed exhibitions will open later this month: Michigan Modern will feature mid-century modernist architecture, while Mathias Alten highlights the life and work of one of Michigan’s most important American Impressionist painters of the early 20th century.
   Finally, I hope you’ll take a few moments to shop at the museum store. We have the best fun socks in town! Check it out at and find the perfect gift today!
