Discover Your Program
Programs at the Stearns History Museum have been created especially for visitors like you, who are as excited about history as we are. We’ve designed each one to be a unique experience where you can interact with our resources, our museum staff, and other like-minded participants.
These programs can be something you try once or look forward to each month. Explore our current program offerings below, and find dates for each one on our Calendar.
Century Farms Program
In June of each year, we honor Stearns County families by designating their farms as Century Farms with the installation of commemorative markers. This program recognizes the long history of area farmers as stewards of the land and the tradition of passing down a way of life to family members.
