Welcome to the new MNHS.org! We're excited to show you the features we've added to enhance your experience.

Whether you're searching for events around the state, location hours, primary source documents or project-specific grants, everything is now just a click away. We've also updated our navigation to make it easier to find what you're looking for. If you are looking for Research or Preservation, they are now located under the Explore menu.

And finally, more people are using smartphones and tablets to find information online. That's why we've made sure that our website is responsive, meaning that it looks great and functions perfectly on any size screen.

Summer 2023 Research Systems Update

As part of the redesign, some of our research tools are undergoing necessary updates that will impact some users in the short-term.

Collections Online: Access to Collections online is temporarily unavailable for remote and in-person researchers. We anticipate the portal will be accessible to the public later this summer. 

Minnesota People Records Search: We are addressing issues related to the implementation of a new interface and back-end system. We expect those issues to be resolved quickly.

Finding Aids: Finding aids can be accessed through our online catalog or by using computers located at the Gale Family Library. Visit our Searching Finding Aids guide.
