Visiting HHM

This is a very small museum that you can thoroughly tour in 15 minutes. It could make a nice addition to a visit to the MIA with bigger kids or a perfectly short visit with small children. The space is sometimes tight and the artwork and antiques are within easy reach of small hands. We were careful to remind our kids as we walked in to use their indoor voices and keep their hands to themselves.

Exhibits change out rather quickly. You could make a monthly visit and find new things each time.

If you need to bring a stroller, bring an umbrella stroller. You'll be going up a couple flights of stairs to visit the galleries.

First Free Thursdays at Hennepin History Museum

The first Thursday of the month is the museum's free day. Visit between 1 p.m. and 8 p.m.
