  • It is an interesting and informative descriptor of a dark chapter in Minnesota's history, and the video is a classic small-town-museum work of art. The murals are pretty swell too.
  • Very informative and excellent history lesson for all ages. Our family of 4, our daughter age 9 1/2 & our son age 12 enjoyed it! Gifts and books about the fire and other books about Minnesota sold here.
  • Had no idea this was here. Both my husband and I were raised in MN and did not know the history. Was nice day to visit, staff was AMAZING and knowledgeable.
  • A must visit location when coming to Hinckley. Learn about the Hinckley Fire and see the great displays.
  • Very informative! The film was extremely interesting, personnel was friendly and provided many facts. Glad we went!
