Stearns History Museum will join other organizations across the country in offering free admission to federal employees and their families during the partial government shutdown.

Government workers just need to show their federal employee ID to staff, and they and their immediate family members can enjoy the Museum for free. The Stearns History Museum prides itself in being a place of inspiration and discovery. We also hope to alleviate stress during this challenging time.

The offer does not include special events and programming. 



Minnesota basketball superstar and University of Minnesota Women’s Basketball Coach Lindsay Whalen will headline the Stearns History Museum’s History Maker Gala on May 2, 2019.

The History Maker Gala will take place on the campus of the College of St. Benedict. It begins with a VIP reception and social hour at 5:30 p.m., followed by dinner and the presentation. St. Cloud Times sports writer Tom Elliott will be on hand to facilitate Whalen’s presentation. Sponsorship, table, and ticket sales have already begun and are selling quickly. Individual tickets are $75 each for members; $100 each for nonmembers. For tickets, membership and/or sponsorship information, click here call the museum directly at 320-253-8424.
