Plan Your Visit

We're excited to welcome you back to the Forest History Center! Learn about new health and safety protocols and additional information below to help you plan your visit.

Keeping us all safe

Our priority is to maintain a safe environment for visitors, staff, and volunteers. Please read for details about health and safety precautions:

  • Face masks are encouraged but not required for all visitors regardless of vaccination status.
  • MNHS sites reserve the right to request masking in areas where social distancing is unavailable, in confined spaces, or in areas with limited air circulation.
  • We are conducting enhanced cleaning of high-touch surfaces and providing hand-sanitizing stations for visitors.
  • Social distancing is encouraged.
  • If you are feeling sick, have flu-like symptoms, or have been in contact with someone who has recently had COVID-19, please visit us another time.

Visitor tips

  • Most visitors spend an hour in the visitor center, and an hour and a half at the logging camp.
  • Don’t forget your camera and a good pair of walking shoes! The historic site offers trails through a variety of natural landscapes inhabited by wildlife.
  • Service animals are permitted. For safety reasons, service animals are not allowed in close proximity to horses in the barn.
  • Pets are not allowed.
