Giving to North Star ensures that the history of Boy Scouting and Girl Scouting in the region is preserved, and that its stories are told.
The mission of the North Star Museum of Boy Scouting and Girl Scouting is to collect, preserve, share and interpret the history and significance of Boy Scouting and Girl Scouting in the Upper Midwest. The museum was founded in 1976, and has been collecting and exhibiting its considerable collection since in a variety of venues. In 2006, the museum celebrated the grand opening at its new and permanent location in the community of North St. Paul, Minnesota. In our new 10,500 square foot building, we exhibit portions of our collection, provide guided tours and programs, serve as a gathering place for the Boy Scout and Girl Scout community, and preserve our 150,000+ object collection.
