The Stearns History Museum will re-open by appointment only for Museum Members on Tuesday June 23, following the new safety measures outlined by Governor Walz. We want to thank you for your unwavering support the past few months. Follow these simple steps to gain Members Only access from June 23- July 3:

  • Call the Museum at 320-253-8424 to schedule your visit. Appointments are available Tuesday-Saturday from 10am-4pm, with extended hours Thursday evening until 7pm. Please call at least 48 hours before you wish to visit to ensure there is an open time. We’ll greet you at the door when you arrive! Have your membership card handy.
  • We will be wearing masks and we ask that you do too. We will be glad to give you one if you forget yours! Hand sanitizer is available throughout the building.
  • To ensure proper social distancing, please limit your group size to 6 or less for the exhibit galleries and 2 or less for the Research Center. Please note that our Children’s Room will remain closed for the foreseeable future.
  • We will be learning the “new normal” along with you…so please be patient with us as we do. You belong here and we can’t wait to see you!

Moving forward, SHM will open to the general public by appointment on Tuesday July 7. More details to follow. You can make reservations for a visit now through Labor Day weekend. See you soon!
