We missed you.
After a 15-month hiatus, the Nicollet County Historical Society is excited to welcome you back through our doors. Thank you for your continued support and patience during this unprecedented time. We hope to make your visit as enjoyable as possible, while adhering to health and safety protocols. Learn about new health and safety practices below.
Keeping us all safe.
We’ve put safety measures in place to protect the health of our visitors, staff, and volunteers:
- We are conducting enhanced cleaning of high-touch surfaces and providing hand-sanitizing stations for visitors.
- Masks are encouraged to protect our visitors who cannot be vaccinated.
- Social distancing is still encouraged.
- If you feel sick, have flu-like symptoms, or have been in contact with someone who has recently had COVID-19, please visit us another time.
During your visit.
Admission to the museum gives you access to all exhibits, including the Treaty of Traverse des Sioux, Educational Excellence, Fort Ridgely, and coming soon, Marian Anderson: Her Artistic Process.
- Open hours are Thursday – Saturday from 10:00 AM – 4:00 PM.
- The Research Center is not open for walk-ins. Please make an appointment with the Research Coordinator. Online research services are available.
- Please wear a mask if you are not yet fully vaccinated (not yet 2 weeks after your last shot).
- If you are fully vaccinated (2 weeks after your last shot), you may choose whether to wear a mask, but we strongly encourage it.
- Many interactive components are removed for safety reasons.
- We still recommend keeping your distance between other groups or visitors.
Please be patient with one another as we navigate reopening.
