We’re sending a mammoth-sized congratulations out to all of the student staff and scientific collections assistants graduating this year!
Welcome to the new Bell Museum
We are Minnesota’s official natural history museum and planetarium. Our brand new home on the University of Minnesota’s St. Paul campus features a digital planetarium, high-tech exhibits, our famous wildlife dioramas, outdoor learning experiences and more.
Explore the far reaches of the universe in the Whitney and Elizabeth MacMillan Planetarium, see a glimpse of the diversity of life on Earth and throughout Minnesota, travel back in time to meet a woolly mammoth, and learn about University of Minnesota researchers imagining a better future.
