  • During the summer we sometimes have three or more grandkids here for the entire summer, it's cooler inside. Winter months it's warm. Our entire family is hooked on the wealth of hands on experience, r...  more »
  • Always love going to the History Center. It is a place I can take my teenagers, my grandparents, and my grandchildren and I know everyone will have an enjoyable time. 
  • One of the best museums out here in Minnesota. I give this high Marks. Went on a whim and was pleasantly surprised, a lot of work goes in to showing how history has impacted Minnesota and vice versa. ...  more »

  • A children's museum! ?!?. What was this person looking at? Yes, there are things for children but there is so much more. The Greatest Generation exhibit or the Civil War exhibit was very much for adults. The Society operates many historical sites all over the state. They also house the Gale library which contains historical documents you will find no where else.
  • A great history museum, research center, gift shop, and cafeteria - all in one!
  • Great place to learn about local history, and they are always having special exhibits. My kids loved the what-it's-like-to-be-in-a-basement-when-a-tornado-goes-by. Also has the best state history library: free to use, but you can't check anything out.
  • Very cool museum. Because a large portion of the home museum is dedicated to th special exhibit, I would advise looking at the topic before going. Otherwise you may be at a museum that is of little interest to you.
  • $12 a person seems kind of steep, but other than that, the Minnesota History Center is an interesting place to visit, both educational and entertaining.
