Celebrate the Great Minnesota Get-Together with MNHS

The Minnesota Historical Society is preparing for the kickoff of the Minnesota State Fair next week. Here’s where visitors can find MNHS every day of the fair:

  • Enjoy performances of History-on-a-Schtick daily at 9:30 am and 10:30 am in the Schilling Amphitheater in the West End Market.
  • Grab a free Minnesota State Fair Walking Tour brochure and discover the history of this over 150-year-old state institution. This year venture to two new stops, the Swine Barn and the Lee & Rose Warner Coliseum. Visit eight or more stops to receive a prize at the MNHS booth in the Education Building or the History & Heritage Center in the West End Market.
  • At the MNHS booth in the Education Building, find out about upcoming exhibits and programs, take your picture with our postcard photo op, and learn about revitalization plans for Historic Fort Snelling ahead of its bicentennial in 2020.
