As Minnesota’s state natural history museum, our mission is to ignite curiosity and wonder, explore our connections to nature and the universe, and create a better future for our evolving world.
We are Minnesota’s official natural history museum, established by the legislature in 1872 and held in trust by the University of Minnesota. For over a century, the museum has preserved and interpreted our state’s rich natural history and served learners of all ages through hands-on experiences at the intersection of the sciences, arts, and humanities. Additionally, our scientific collections contain over one million specimens, representing every county in Minnesota and various locales around the globe.
