Introducing the History Hideout
( The History Hideout is paused for now. It will return
when the executive order re-opening the museum is issued. )
The History Hideout is a dedicated room at the museum available for a family to reserve for two hours on Sundays between the hours of noon and 4 pm. The History Hideout will be furnished with items for hands-on fun for the entire family such as school desks and slates, costumes, storybooks and historical nonfiction books, games, puzzles, and activities. To assure the safety of all, the museum will be closed to the general public during the reserved time, and up to ten family members can use the space. Hand sanitizer and wipes will be provided and items will be sanitized or quarantined before their next use.
The cost is $50, which covers museum admission and a staff person on site. NHS members can reserve the room for $40. Make a reservation by calling 507-645-9268 or by emailing email@example.com. Weekend reservations must be made by the preceding Thursday.
Funding for the History Hideout was provided by the Minnesota Humanities Council through the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) as part of the Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security (CARES) Act economic stabilization plan.
