Give to the North Star Museum of Boy Scouting and Girl Scouting! Values kept here!
Out of the past we come. We dwell in the present. And we hope that our good works, stories, and artifacts will live after us.
At the North Star Museum of Boy Scouting and Girl Scouting, the present can learn from your past, and you can ensure that your present is preserved for the future. We are the bridge from past to future, serving youth and adults now with exhibits, educational programs, and a preservation program that ensures that tomorrow’s youth and adults will know who walked before them. Innovative programs like Merit Badge Workshops, Overnight at the Museum, Twilight Camps, Journey Workshops, and more - have provided opportunities for education, rank advancement, leadership and service.The North Star Museum also offers an enriching environment for Courts of Honor ceremonies, Blue & Golds, Gold Award and Bridging ceremonies, Troop and Pack meetings, District Roundtables and more!
We’ve moved miles in the last two years, and we have miles to go before we sleep. Two new exhibits have opened this year: Firm Bound in Brotherhood - a 100th anniversary exhibit for Order of the Arrow, and the new Adventures in CampCraft exhibit - created just for kids - that has already delighted hundreds of Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts! It is gratifying to see girls playing games that Juliette Low might have played at her birthday party more than 100 years ago. It is wonderful to see boys laying a trail around the museum gallery for their buddy to follow. It warms our hearts to see an old Boy Scout point to a patch and say, “I got one of those when I was on camp staff!”, and he’s grinning from ear to ear. And there is nothing better than seeing a grandmother tell her granddaughter how she canoed the Boundary Waters when she was a Girl Scout. The North Star Museum enables those moments.
