Minnesota Historical Society  MNHS preserves Minnesota's past, shares our state's stories and connects people with history in meaningful ways.


For Mexican-Americans, Dia de los Muertos or Day of the Dead is a powerful way to honor ancestors and heritage. Learn about the holiday and join the History Center’s annual celebration that features music, folk dancing, traditional Mexican games, art activities, samples of traditional bread and hot chocolate, and beautiful ofrendas or altars, which are tributes to those who have departed. The ofrendas were created by local students, community organizations and professional artists.

The celebration is on Oct. 22 from 12-4pm. This program is offered in partnership with the Consulate of Mexico. Ofrendas will be on display at the History Center through November 2. #diadelosmuertos #photography

#OTD 2014 The city of Minneapolis named today Indigenous People’s Day. St Paul did so in 2015 & the state of MN did so in 2016.

During World War I, African Americans were asked to help make the world "safe for democracy" and contribute to the war effort, though they were denied equality at home. Learn more about their experience in the gripping web series Storied on MNHS Facebook. Click link in bio to view.

Over the summer we invited a group of bloggers to come to #MNHistoryCenter to experience our Then Now Wow exhibit with their families. If you have not been to this exhibit, it's a great exhibit for kids to learn about the many cultures that make up the Twin Cities.

At MNHS, we have always been committed to the idea that History Matters. And that history always starts with our personal history. History matters nationwide, statewide and in our own backyards. We asked Minnesotans to tell us why their history matters. Take a look at some of the responses we got from #MyHistoryMatters. Be on the lookout for MNHS employees asking you why your history matters in your communities and at MNHS events! #photography

Stories from one of our newest exhibits, Amvets Post #5 Photographs by Xavier Tavera from @jansfranco. "My Great Papa was featured in a gallery for being a Mexican American War Vet and hero. I was so happy to see his photograph. I miss him a lot, but I wore his Bracelet to feel him with me."
Thank you for sharing your story with us @jansfranco! #veteran #photography #repost #visitmnhistory

We are saddened to hear of the passing of Hüsker Dü drummer and co-songwriter, Grant Hart. Hart's contribution to music helped shape alternative and hardcore rock.
