Families can learn a little about Minnesota history by exploring the Alexander Ramsey House at special programs and seasonal events. Ramsey, who so many things are named after, was Minnesota's first territorial governor. His families' Victorian-era home is still filled with thousands of original family items and furnishings.

Birthday Parties at Alexander Ramsey House

Children ages 8 to 12 can celebrate birthdays or other private celebrations with a Victorian Dress Up Party. During the 2-hour program children can try on bustles, corsets, petticoats and dresses over their clothes.

Time Capsule for Families at Alexander Ramsey House

Families can explore a different year in the life of the Ramsey family in a hands-on program on the first Saturday of each month. Using a timeline map and Time Capsule Tokens, families can discover the food, fashion, music, and special events in history. This program is popular and sells out quickly. If you plan to attend a full year, a family Historical Society membership is a good idea.

A Victorian Christmas at the Alexander Ramsey House

In this annual tradition, visitors can participate in a special holiday tour to experience a Victorian Christmas from the point of view of both the Ramseys and their servants. Participants have the chance to see original ornaments and gifts, hear traditional holiday piano music, and eat cookies baked in a wood stove.
