Minnesota History Center

History comes to life through interactive exhibits and specialized lessons for your students. The History Center offers a full menu of programs designed to meet your grade level’s needs.

Field trips to the History Center give your students access to all of our interactive exhibits, including Then Now Wow, Minnesota's Greatest Generation, and Weather Permitting. In addition, you may choose to add a classroom lesson and/or Play the Past.

The Grainland exhibit is temporarily closed during COVID-19 concerns because we do not have the capacity to completely sanitize the exhibit's play structure to the standard and frequency being recommended by the CDC.
