The Minnesota Historical Society preserves and makes available a wide range of materials chronicling Minnesota's history and culture. The goals of the Collections Department are to collect and preserve; provide access and interpretation; and engage in education and outreach. This blog is a tool to share these stories and let people know what is happening in the department.
National Animal Day
Today is National Animal Day!
We all love our dogs and cats, but we wanted to look at more surprising animals in the collection. So here is a photo of R. F. Jones with baby bears at Longfellow Gardens, Minneapolis in 1925.
Stay tuned for a future TikTok to celebrate animal day, coming soon!
