The Air Zoo gladly welcomes fly-ins to its East Campus facility, which is located just off the Kalamazoo/Battle Creek International Airport (AZO) grounds. If you are unfamiliar with where the East Campus is, ask the AZO air traffic control tower and they will direct you where to go.

Once you arrive, please check in at the East Campus' ticket counter. From there, an Air Zoo volunteer or employee will direct you to the Air Zoo's Main Campus building. (It is about a five-minute walk from the East Campus.)


The Air Zoo is located at 6151 Portage Road in Portage, MI, halfway between Detroit and Chicago. We're off I-94 (exit 78), just south of the Kalamazoo/Battle Creek International Airport.

No outside food or drink is allowed.
