The Minnesota Alliance of Local History Museums formed in 1991 to support each other in our mission of connecting people to nearby history.
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 together 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.
