Minnesota History Pass Opens Doors For Students

Sixth graders will enjoy free admission in support of revised state social studies standards

The 6th Grade Minnesota History Pass grants all Minnesota 6th graders free admission to any MHS historic site or museum during the 2013-2014 academic year. This year marks the launch of this exciting opportunity.

Any child who is in 6th grade in Minnesota is eligible to receive the 6th Grade Minnesota History Pass. The pass will provide free admittance for the student (only the 6th grader, not parents or siblings) to all MHS locations through Aug. 31, 2014. The pass may not be used for field trips, paid programs or specially priced exhibits.

This new program has been developed to support the new state academic standards, which designate Minnesota state history and government as the primary focus of 6th grade social studies curriculum.

For more information or to request a History Pass for your 6th grader, please visit www.mnhs.org/education.
