A project of HENNEPIN HISTORY MUSEUM
The Hennepin History Museum is the repository for items that represent all facets of life in Hennepin County, from past to present.
Come join us and visit one Minnesota's most unique social history museums. The Hennepin History Museum offers wide-ranging exhibits in an historic mansion setting, along with dfarchival collections utilized by history buffs, scholars, and everyone who wants to learn about Hennepin County. As an award-winning history museum, we embrace a diverse range of cultures and social histories through our exhibits and outreach education programs.
A bit of our history: in 1858 the Hennepin County Territorial Pioneers Association was formed to record the history of the territory; in 1938 the organization was renamed the County Historical Society. Since the late 1990's, we've been the Hennepin History Museum, as we strive to represent the many cultures that make up Hennepin County.
