The Dakota/settler war exhibit was so good we went back the next day to absorb more. Really deepened our understanding and appreciation of the area's history and the challenges of all the people trying to survive there. Brought New Ulm to life for us. Also in a beautiful building (old post office).
The third floor exhibit about the Dakota Native American and Minnesota War was very detailed. There are many artifacts to see. The audio/visual presentations were excellent.
Provides a thorough history of Brown County.... Exhibit on the Dakota Wars was highly informative and impressively presented. The museum staff were friendly, well informed and very helpful... the exhibits were well laid out... many items displayed from the early 1900s. This is a MUST SEE attraction.
