Moving Minnesota

The museum's galleries in Minneapolis are now closed to prepare to move Minnesota's official natural history museum to its new home on the St. Paul campus. But we're not going away!

Stay connected with us online to find out what we have in store over the closure—from school visits and summer camps to popup museums.





Summer Camp

Budding scientists, Pre-K- Grade 6, can participate in the Science Discovery Day Camps, where play, hands-on activities, and learning combine for a week of spectacular science fun!

Check out camp from Art in Nature to Jr Scientists & Engineers, including new camps on paleontology, climate, and people & the planet!
