We visited on a weekend in early October so the seasonal special tractor parade events were over and much of the tractors were already stored for the winter. Since we couldn't walk far, we skipped the indoor museum this time but drove around the grounds looking at the old farmstead, the little log cabin -- even the inside! -- and... 更多
Place was well organized, not cluttered like a lot of county museums are. Helped me appreciate how the Mayo brothers shaped the area. Visit the out houses and imagine what it was like to live in a cave in the Minnesota winter.
If you're looking for something to do that's educational too, visit this museum. The price wasn't too bad, though the tour is self-guided.

The History Center Library has a wealth of info for anyone looking for relatives from long ago. Staff were incredibly helpful and really excited in helping us search our early settlers to the area. The online database is also very helpful in finding relatives. Thanks!

I attended to see the stock class tractor pulls. This was a good time where a lot so different activities are going on all day long from steam engine tractors hooked up to old time belt driven saw mills, old thrashers in action and much more. A good time for kids and adults alike where you can visit the past... 更多
I really appreciate the time and effort that this history center has put into their exhibits. Local history is something that not enough people appreciate, and this is a great place to go to step into the past and learn some fascinating information. Highly recommend a visit!
