Historic Sites and Museums

Minnesota is home to countless historic sites and museums. A commonly used definition of a historic site is an official location where pieces of political, military or social history have been preserved. Historic sites are usually protected by law, and many have recognized with the official national historic site status. A historic site is any building, landscape, site, or structure that is of local, regional, or national significance. The Minnesota Historical Society maintains a list of over thirty of Minnesota’s interesting Historic Sites, including but not limited to the Alexander Ramsey House, Jeffers Petroglyph, and the Lindbergh House.
