The Minnesota Alliance of Local History Museums formed in 1991 to support each other in our mission of connecting people to nearby history.
Resources for Reopening
We hear you! These are uncharted waters for everyone. How are we supposed to decide when to open again, how can we welcome the public again, what are other museums in MN doing?
MALHM hosted a series of discussions on how we're navigating reopening once it's safe to do so again, highlighted resources can be found here.
We're in this together.

What does the Alliance do?
Minnesota's local history groups formed an alliance in 1991. Even though we serve different communities throughout the state, we share a common mission of connecting people to nearby history. Some of us have professional staff, but many of us are small, volunteer-run societies. Together, we work to raise the quality of work in the local history field in Minnesota. The Minnesota Alliance for Local History Museums serves the approximately 500-plus local history groups throughout the state with professional training, awards for excellence, mutual assistance in times of disaster and more.
