We have one of the largest collections of genealogical and local history research materials in the Upper Midwest!
There's something for everyone at the Minnesota Discovery Center!
All year, our fun events highlight the culture of the Iron Range Region.
The strike is on! Come explore our newest exhibit “Enough! The 1916 Mesabi Range Strike” and discover why 10,000 immigrants walked out of the mines in the summer of 1916.
Iron Range Veterans
Minnesota Discovery Center preserves the history of the Iron Range with a searchable online database of local veterans, assisting Press-Lloyd American Legion Post #247 in Chisholm, Minnesota.
Before the industrialization and mass production of textiles, cloth was highly valued. In this special online exhibit, In partnership with the Range Fiberart Guild, we see how rug makers give “rags” a new life.
Support the celebration and preservation of the history and culture of the Iron Range region. The generous support of our members, donors, volunteers and sponsors makes that history come alive!
You know the drill... ;-)
