I enjoy all parts of it - the Museum, the tours, the special exhibits and the use of the library since I do genealogy.

The musuem is neatly organized, welcoming, and comfortable. The staff is so nice they give you enough space yet let you know their pressence is around. They don't stalk you and they're always around to answer any questions you may have. They're very knowledgeable and open. There is so much to see and do there. There's a lot to keep you busy for hours. It's great for all ages.

i used my membership first for the James J Hill House. What a treat! I loved going back in time and hearing the guide's detailed and interesting information about each room of the house. I am ready to go back and learn some more! I get admission to several other museums with my membership. I thought this was a great Groupon deal!

The History Center is great place to visit. There are so many exhibits/activities and sites to visit. You can go one or all of the 26 sites and frequently visit the History Center because of the changing special exhibits.

The people that work here (Mill City Museum) are AMAZINGLY nice! I bought a Groupon and it expired. They honored it and said it's fine and I did not pay any extra for my membership. I was in the system and my one year membership will expired the day that my Groupon expired. This museum membership is a great deal and the museums are SO fun for families. Can't wait to spend the summer learning and visiting all the museums included in this membership!

About This Deal

Whether it’s via plutonium-powered DeLoreans or unwieldy London telephone booths, time travel can be a minefield of space-time rifts, branching timelines, and evil doppelgangers. Instead, let history safely repeat itself under controlled, non-paradoxical conditions with today’s Groupon: $35 gets two adults and children or grandchildren (under 18) a yearlong household membership to the Minnesota Historical Society ($75 value).

Your Minnesota Historical Society household membership will get you the following benefits for one year:

  • Free or discounted admission to 26 historic sites and museums throughout Minnesota
  • Discounts and free admission to more than 100 museums and historical organizations affiliated with Time Travelers
  • Admission to members-only exhibit previews, lectures, and other events
  • Subscriptions to Minnesota History quarterly magazine and member newsletter
  • Admission to members-only exhibit previews, lectures, and other events
  • Discounts applied to museum stores, cafes, online store, parking, classes, and more
  • Membership is tax-deductible

Whether you’ve lived here all your life, or you only recently arrived from Iceland on your longship, a better grasp of Minnesota’s rich history will enhance the way you experience the state. Stop by the Mill City Museum and explore the framework of what was once the world’s largest flour mill, which, after being nearly destroyed by fire in 1991, produced the world’s largest loaf of bread, which went on to make five or six of the world’s largest sandwiches. You can also visit the striking Minnesota History Center and peruse exhibits concerning the state’s history with weather, grain production, and Founding Father Benjamin Franklin before researching a vast collection of texts in the library. Or road trip it to a historical site such as Split Rock Lighthouse, which is currently celebrating its centennial year. Built on a notoriously dangerous stretch of Lake Superior’s coast, by 1924 it was called “probably the most visited lighthouse in the United States” and was later shut down in 1969 due to the mutant moth swarms it was attracting.

The sheer abundance of information, stimulation, and costumed people at Minnesota’s historical sites can be overwhelming, but with today’s deal, you won’t feel pressured to see it all in one day. Whether you pop in on your lunch break or plan a weekend trek, your household membership will let you experience the portions of Minnesota history that haven’t been preserved in large blocks of ice.


Yelpers and a lone Judy’s Book reviewer both give the Minnesota History Center four stars, while one TripAdvisor awards it four owl eyes. Four Citysearchers give the museum a near-perfect 4.5 stars: > * Created for the sake of collecting, preserving and sharing the state’s history, the Minnesota History Center is a place that every Minnesotan should experience. The building is large, clean and the architecture is stunning…Anything one would ever want to know concerning Minnesota’s history can be found here. There is something for everyone, including the kids. This place has much to offer! – Deena K., Judy’s Book > * This is a great place for kids to go. It is fairly small and there is [sic] great things for kids to do. – zackhairy, Citysearch > * When we took her kids to the MN History Center, my friend was afraid they would be bored and wanting to leave shortly after arriving. Was she wrong! – Proofwell, Citysearch
