Hennepin History Museum’s exhibitions and programs
bring the untold stories of Hennepin County to life!
We are proud to be in the middle of a trio of exhibit programs that tell a compelling story:
Owning Up: Racism and Housing in Minneapolis opened in 2018 and told the stories of families affected by the discriminatory practices of redlining in Minneapolis, and the lasting legacy of those practices seen today.
Open now—Human Toll: A Public History of 35W examines the homes lost and families displaced in South Minneapolis that activists and leaders fought to save, and the memories left behind that shape how freeways are constructed today.
Separate Not Equal, opening Spring 2022, delves into the groundbreaking story of Hale and Field schools, where the segregation in Minneapolis neighborhoods & schools was first challenged by dedicated parents and school leaders.
Help us tell these important stories with your gift to
Hennepin History Museum this Give to the Max Day!
