Air Zoo Expansion Planned

KALAMAZOO (WKZO) -- A major expansion is planned at Kalamazoo's "Air Zoo."

The plan is to move the Air and Space and World War II exhibits that are currently housed in the original museum building to a new 50,000 foot structure next to the new Air Zoo off Portage Road.

The original site would then be converted into a plane restoration center where visitors could see the work being done to rebuild the old planes.

The expansion plan would cost $1.8 million and will be funded by grants from foundations, corporations and individuals.
