This is a wonderful museum and research center. Their special exhibits are always interesting and thought-provoking. The children's area is educational and fun for children from preschool through elementary school. The research center contains a wealth of resources for historical and genealogical study. The two gift shops are lovely. A membership is worthwhile.

Went to see the 1968 exhibit. Brought back a lot of memories, some good, some very sad. The exhibit was very well done, and the volunteer guides were top-notch. Highly recommended.

This was a terrific museum with well-curated and interesting exhibits. There was a lot to see, and all members of the family would find something they would like. A couple of the exhibits evoked some different emotions, so I feel they did a good job of making people think, learn and appreciate. Definitely worth an afternoon of your time.

This was our first visit to the History Museum and my husband and I thoroughly enjoyed it. SO much information about Minnesota that is exhibited in different ways. Loved the 1968 exhibit. Brought back memories of things we havent seen or thought of since we were small children. We also enjoyed and learned alot about weather in Minnesote. The exhibit of tornados was fascinating and quite real!
