Thank you for your interest. In response to ongoing concerns over health and safety practices, MNHS museums and historic sites will not host any field trips during the 2020-2021 school year.
Look for scholarships to re-open in the fall of 2021 for the 2021-2022 school year.
To receive information on reopenings, distance learning tools, and classroom resources, sign up for the education enewsletter.
The Minnesota Historical Society has a deep commitment to education. To increase access for students and teachers, we offer numerous scholarships and subsidies to help offset the costs of field trips, bus transportation, education programs, and teacher workshops.
