Project Overview

The Minnesota Historical Society is developing a major, new, hands-on exhibit designed to bring the rich cultural tapestry of Minnesota into vivid focus. Visitors to “Then Now Wow" (the exhibit's working title was "Our Minnesota") at the Minnesota History Center will explore the state’s distinctive places and meet the people who have made their homes here.

In 2011, Arts and Cultural Heritage funds supported staff time devoted to creating the exhibit which opens in fall 2012.
