Project Overview
MNHS exhibits are supported by diverse programming that complements exhibit content while extending the rich stories of Minnesota's history. MNHS staff are able to partner with community organizations on innovative programs for visitors of all ages. In FY17, programs included lectures, panel discussions, film screenings, musical performances, readers theater programs in the exhibit gallery, hands-on family activities and other events. New in FY17, North Woods Girl Storybook Walk was an exhibit of giant illustrated storybook pages, taken from the MNHS Press book of the same name, that was displayed throughout the building. The exhibit promoted reading and physical activity for preschool-age children and their families.
