The Minnesota Music Hall of Fame is located at First North Street and Broadway in New Ulm, Minnesota, United States, in the former public library. It has memorabilia of individual musicians and musical groups, as well as photographs of all who have been inducted. The museum is open during the summer months and by special request during the winter.

Exhibits honor Minnesota music legends like Bob Dylan, Judy Garland, Prince, Eddie Cochran, Bobby Vee, Ervin Wolfe, John Denver, Whoopee John Wilfahrt, Harold Loeffelmacher, Earl Schmidt, Wally Pikal and The Andrews Sisters. It also documents local ethnic music, like the popularity of polka music in rural Minnesota.

Each year, new inductees are added at a dinner ceremony in October.

  • Here's what you need to know: if your grandparents were married in the 50s/60s and had a live band at their wedding, in a venue, Go! Browse through the promotional posters advertising the venues' band dates. I would love to hear if someone finds their grandparents' wedding dances. 💖 Also, It's best to be a Minnesotan with familiarity of the music scene, but you'll find some gems that take you down memory lane: The Andrews Sisters, Soul Asylum, Bobby Vee.. You can text John for a tour in winter and he responds quickly.
  • Super fun..... had no idea the range of musicians from Minnesota. Great audio tour!
