Description

We've been collecting, preserving, and presenting Hennepin County's history since 1938. In that time, our county has seen incredible change: the introduction of freeways, a blossoming non-European immigrant community, the growth of our arts and cultural institutions, and the invention of shopping malls. All along, the Hennepin History Museum has collected and preserved the materials and artifacts that tell these stories and so many others. We provide members and the public with rotating exhibits, programs, and access to our archives.
