May is Minnesota Museums Month

Filed under: Arts, Event, Fairs — Alison Aten @ 2:19 pm

Minnesota Museums MonthMinnesota Museums Month is a statewide celebration of museums, their stories, and their communities. This May, visit a new museum in your community, take a road trip, or return to one of your favorites that you haven’t seen in a while. Museums of every type—art, historical, science, arboretums, zoos, and more—are participating.

The Minnesota History Center is one of approximately six hundred museums in the state! Check out www.museumsmonth.org as well as their Facebook and Twitter feeds for more information and events.

Minnesota Museums Month launches in conjunction with the 106th Annual Meeting of the American Association of Museums. Being held in Minneapolis/St. Paul, the meeting will welcome more than five thousand museum professionals from institutions in every state and more than thirty countries. Minnesota’s vibrant museum and cultural community provides an ideal setting for this year’s theme, “Creative Community.”

Our new book Building Museums: A Handbook for Small and Midsize Organizations by Robert Herskovitz, David Grabitske, and Timothy Glines was released earlier this year. If you are attending the AAM meeting, please stop by the Minnesota Historical Society Press booth to check it out!

See you out and about at Minnesota museums next month!
