Stearns History Museum reviews
Museum exhibits were under construction so the visit was limited. However a photo display challenges the visitor to see cultural diversity thru the lens of military service and cultural bonds formed..... more »
Lots of local and state history with interesting photos and fascinating exhibits. Stearns County's growth and change is well chronicled. more »
Very nice museum. Great displays and quite educational. With ONE major exception!! There is absolutely zero displays & information on Native American cultures. Natives lived in this area for many centuries. Not one item. I asked the desk lady about this obvious historical deletion....she just looked at me, said nothing. Embarrassed? I've been to other nearby county museums (Kandyohoy, etc) and they display fantastic Native history. It's a rich and deeply beautiful history we need to include about Stearns Co. I'd highly recommend adding a new Native American section. The museum is a terrific asset. No question. However, It needs to include an accurate history of the original area inhabitants & land owners. Richard Quigley
Very interesting place that probably will mean more to locals. I never knew this place existed until this year. It used to be hidden by trees before Costco went in, so you never could see it from the road. The exhibition was small, but had it's own charm. They also provide a place to search family history and other rooms that I believe can be rented out. Staff is friendly and helpful. Recommend everyone from the area go at least once. Also you can try on the fireman outfit!
