The MNHS has issued us an invitation: “Until we can welcome you back to our sites and museums, we invite you to continue to learn about history with us online. Here are a few ideas to get you started.”
Explore your family history
Now is a good time to share stories and reflect on your family’s history — then research it online using our wide array of digital resources. Locate birth, death, marriage, census, immigration, and military records, newspapers, and historical photos, and explore your roots. Need help? Contact our amazing reference librarians at 651-259-3300.
Watch the Storied series
Our Storied videos invite you to go beyond the bare facts of Minnesota history. Uncover the real stories and real people behind the dates — and for a short time, inhabit their lives. See mnhs.org/storied.
