Family Programs

The Stearns History Museum supports several family-friendly activities including: Halloween Historia, KringleFest, Cabin Fever Reliever, Y'Seum Summer Camp and more! The Museum also has an on-site children’s playroom, designed to educate and entertain families.


School Programs

Each year the Stearns History Museum provides programs for area schools.  Sponsorships can fund admission for field trips to the Museum.  In this time of economic struggle for schools, scholarships for field trips are welcomed gifts, providing resources to schools, as well as to the Museum.


Research Center and Archives

The Research Center and Archives provides invaluable resources to genealogists, students, and the general public in their search for information.  Funds support the purchase of new equipment like micro-readers, supplies, and reference materials.
