Our mission is to gather, preserve and disseminate history for the enjoyment and education of young and old, residents and travelers alike. The artifacts donated to the museum are symbols of our pride in the past. We are thankful for the foresight and hard work of this organization’s founders and we continue to be dedicated to preserving our county heritage.
We have been honored with national and state awards for our excellent programming. We brings the stories of Anoka County’s past to life with fascinating public programs and thought-provoking exhibitions at the Anoka County History Center and Library. Each year, the dedicated staff and volunteers of the Historical Society serve tens of thousands of history enthusiasts.
