Minnesota museums showcase and celebrate what has made, and still makes, our state unique. Some museums in Minnesota, like the Minnesota History Center, the Science Museum of Minnesota, and some of our art museums are so large that you could spend days and not see everything. 

Other museums are much smaller and focus on a particular interest such as fishing, trains, a famous person, a particular culture or even the quirky and unusual. All are great places to discover summer activities for kids and year-round enjoyment for everyone.
