Minnesota History: Building A Legacy

Legacy Field Trip Support Fund

How is the Minnesota Historical Society using ACHF funds to give more K-12 students direct contact with the History Center and other MHS sites?

  • Challenge: Some schools can’t afford field trips to the Minnesota History Center and state historic sites because busing costs are too high.
  • Solution: $109,345 from the Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund is being used to offset field trip transportation costs for schools throughout the state.
  • Result: By June of 2011, 30,000 more students will participate in exciting, hands-on history field trips.
