If you are interested in snowmobiling, you might want to check out the new West Michigan Snowmobile Museum and Library in Solon Township. in Cedar Springs.
The museum, located west of Meijer, at 13969 Francis Way, is the first of its kind in West Michigan. According to owner Ron Knapp, he wanted a facility to preserve and display the history of snowmobiling, including memorabilia and literature, and to help our community with special events related to snowmobiling.
The museum has antique, vintage, and tricked out sleds that are rare to come by, and they have a library of information detailing snowmobiling from its beginning.
Knapp said they plan to have swap meets, shows, special activities and events related to snowmobiling, and possibly have classes for newcomers to the sport. “We’d like to be an information hub for snowmobilers in our area,” he said.
Hours are noon to 7 p.m. Thursday, Friday and Saturday, Sunday hours are not yet established. They can open for special activities. Admission is by donation. Call (616) 636-7232 for more information.
