In the center's main exhibit hall, "Michigan Coastal Sand Dunes Like Nowhere Else on Earth" features:

  • Dioramas that depict the four dune habitats in all seasons and include models of the animals and plants that live there.
  • An animation station where visitors can see how sand dunes are formed.
  • An interactive audio/video station that shows the ant lion at work and offers a play-by-play account of its hunting skill.
  • An interactive computer station that features other sand dune parks in Michigan.

    The Gillette Sand Dune Visitor Center also includes a classroom with seasonal live animal displays and an auditorium where an audiovisual presentation orients visitors to the park and its surrounding sand dunes.
