Our two Museum Stores are wonderful sources of books and gifts relating to Minnesota's history and culture. The History Center Museum Store has a broad selection of gifts and books related to the exhibits, programs and collections of the History Center, family history research, and the full catalog of the Minnesota Historical Society Press. The Sights of Minnesota Store features gifts and books related to statewide historic sites.

We are proud to present handcrafted items from Minnesota artisans.
