The Central Michigan University Museum of Cultural and Natural History enjoys sharing its collections with the campus and community. Periodically, the museum creates a new temporary exhibit to showcase a collection.​​​​

"Kozmic Clash: Peace, Love and Outer Space"

"Kozmic Clash: Peace, Love and Outer Space" explores the groundbreaking innovation and exploration of 1969, including Woodstock and the Apollo 11 moon landing. An interactive VW bus and information about local veterans and happenings of the time are also on exhibit.
