Hennepin History Museum is uniquely positioned to provide an honest understanding of history to create a more inclusive and equitable future.  We highlight the stories of the past to help us understand our current reality.

We are transforming as an organization. Our board and staff are focused on renewing our infrastructure, collections, and programs with a focus on accessibility and inclusion. We are looking outward: strengthening our relationship with current audiences and gaining new perspectives by building relationships with people and organizations across the county.  

Our partners and supporters understand the pivotal time in which we live. History can play a critical role as a force for community identity, understanding, and purpose. By embracing all members of our community and honoring all the histories that have brought us to this point in time, Hennepin History Museum can take its place as an indispensable institution that is engaged in today's public debates.   

These goals are being accomplished through four critical campaigns. You can support Hennepin History Museum with an unrestricted gift, or you can click on a campaign below to learn more and to support one, or more, of these important initiatives.

  • Accessibility for All: Hennepin History Museum is expanding virtual opportunities to create flexibility and opportunities beyond our walls. 
  • History as an Agent of Change: Through innovative exhibitions and programs, Hennepin History Museum can help shape public dialogue on crucial issues in our communities.
  • Building Relationships in the Community: Hennepin History Museum is building partnerships across the county to learn and share our collective history.
