  • Great little museum with so much information about the local area. It may be small but don't be fooled as there a massive amount of information to take in and items to see. Being from outside of the.....  more »

  • This small museum punches above its weight class, with fascinating artifacts and sometimes provocative exhibits (like one about tattoos). It’s not just a treasure in its region; it’s a resource for the entire state. Friendly and knowledgeable staff. Plus, it’s situated in a beautiful setting overlooking the Mississippi River.
  • Plan on one hour. Admission by voluntary donation. Plenty of parking - if in an RV 30 feet of less it's fine. Longer or a trailer could be awkward. Ignor the name: the museum is the "Morrison County Historical Museum" on property donated by, and in a building donated by Weyerhaeuser. It is not a museum about Weyerhaeuser. It has various artifacts used in the daily life of Americans & Natives / First Nations in the early 1900s. Information and exhibits about farm life / commercial creameries, local plant life, westward expansion, lumber camps and milling, towns that sprung up to support the industry. A "Larsons Boats" display, info about flour mills, brickworks & breweries sprouting up on the river, building of the dam. There's a small Vietnam war display and another on the Kent State shooting.
