St. Paul, Minnesota
Incubating Exhibitions for Minnesota and the Nation
Visitors engage with an exhibit that explores women's suffrage in the United States during World War I. World War I America was funded with an NEH grant. Image courtesy of the Minnesota Historical Society.

Since 1972, the NEH has made consistent investments in the Minnesota Historical Society (MNHS), an organization noted for the scholarly rigor it puts into its locations and exhibitions. The NEH has funded permanent and temporary exhibitions at the Minnesota History Center in St. Paul, as well as public programs, preservation projects, and installations at other sites across the state. While the MNHS has kept its focus on the people of Minnesota and their history and culture, its long-term partnership with the NEH has encouraged the organization to recognize that Minnesota’s story is also a national story and to create exhibitions with wide-ranging appeal.
