MNHS statement on accessibility

The Oliver Kelley Farm welcomes all visitors. We recognize the diverse needs of our audience and strive to offer accessible programming to enable all visitors to explore this historic site.

However, accessibility for guests with limited mobility can be challenging at our historic sites due to historic and natural features. With advance notice, we will make every effort to respond to access needs.

Our goal is to provide as much information as possible to guests before their visit to any of our sites and museums.

If you have additional questions about accessibility or other needs, please contact the Oliver Kelley Farm at 763-441-6896 or kelley.farm@mnhs.org.

For general questions regarding access initiatives at the Minnesota Historical Society, please contact Maren Levad, Museum Access Specialist, at 651-259-3480 or maren.levad@mnhs.org.
