MNHS Statement on Accessibility

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 Charles Lindbergh House and Museum at 320-616-5421 or by email at lindbergh@mnhs.org.
