Knights, cowpokes, jousters, and dedicated patriots all find good reason to journey to Boster Castle, a permanent Renaissance village that also functions as a film studio and year-round festival space. The castle hosts elaborately staged annual festivals, transporting visitors to eras of the distant past. Patrons may find themselves in the midst of a Wild West frontier town—where costumed cowboys play games of Texas hold’em and banjo players entertain ears with the Top 40 hits of the Gold Rush era—or in a storybook Renaissance town populated by archery tournaments, turkey legs, crooning minstrels, and live comedy shows. At each fair, attendees peruse vendors boasting authentic weaponry, period costumes, and the latest in chain-mail formalwear. The castle also hosts monthly themed socials in which revelers can sit for entertainment and fare surrounding mythical cultures, fantasy worlds, or storied periods in history.

Battle Creek Paintball's six fields see prismatic warfare in the form of recreational woodsball to fast-paced speedball year-round, rain or shine. On any of the five outdoor woodland fields, squads of players mimic firefights with flanking maneuvers and extended periods of playing dead. With normal admission, the staff provides markers and all the protective equipment needed to survive a mural to the face.

"An Iron Curtain has descended across the Continent." It was 1946 when Winston Churchill delivered that line during a speech at Westminster College. The iconic phrase has been frozen in time ever since, including at the Iron Curtain sculpture that now stands on campus and almost never blinks. The sculpture depicts the statesman in middle of the speech that arguably marked the beginning of the Cold War.

Churchill's voice and leadership marked many of the 20th Century's most important moments, and this legacy is chronicled within Westminster College's National Churchill Museum. The museum is housed beneath St. Mary the Virgin, Aldermanbury, a church originally built in London in 1677 and eventually moved stone by stone to the college's campus.

Here, the Winston S. Churchill: A Life of Leadership exhibit chronicles Churchill's life in full. Displays incorporate artifacts, audio-visual components, and interactive areas, including a "gentleman's club" with an overstuffed chair, where visitors can listen to tales of Churchill's intelligence and humor. In addition to this permanent exhibit, rotating exhibits showcase different items from the museum's ever-growing vault, which now houses more than 10,000 artifacts.
