MEDIA ALERT: Enjoy Fall Fun at MNHS Historic Sites During MEA Break

While school’s out for MEA break, this weekend is the perfect time to explore Minnesota history with MNHS.

This Friday families can enjoy meet and greets with Minnesota Vikings cheerleaders, their mascot Viktor and team photographer Andy Kenutis, as well as test their football trivia knowledge and craft a goalpost toss game. And visitors can get even more of a football fix by exploring the special exhibit “Gridiron Glory: The Best of the Pro Football Hall of Fame.”

Many MNHS sites are also getting into the Halloween spirit this weekend with events like a Victorian seance at Alexander Ramsey House and Day of the Dead Family Day at the Minnesota History Center. View a full list of spooky Halloween events on the MNHS calendar.

Visitors can also celebrate the beauty of fall outside at Oliver Kelley Farm during Harvest Days, before the site closes at the end of October. Or drive to the North Shore to view the fall colors at Split Rock Lighthouse, which ends its fall season Sunday, Oct. 23.
