Exhibit at The Charles A. Weyerhaeuser Memorial Museum, Little Falls, MN, May 6, 2011.

The Morrison County Historical Society loves visitors at The Charles A. Weyerhaeuser Memorial Museum. With two permanent display rooms and feature exhibits that are periodically changed, there is plenty to see inside the museum.

Outside there are areas of natural prairie plantings, a gazebo overlooking the Mississippi River, and a courtyard landscaped with American Locust trees surrounding a Victorian-style fountain. For further details on interior displays, see Exhibits.

  1. Is there a chance someone might be at the museum on Monday, Aug 20th? I am a big fan of your newsletter and was excited to think I might actually get to see the museum. . . . We are camping with friends at Lindbergh State Park Sunday and Monday. Gayle Gilmore, Duluth, MN 218 310-4663 (cell)

    • Hi, Gayle – Unfortunately, we’re not open on Mondays. Our hours are Tuesday through Saturday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. We hope you’ll be around long enough to make it in.
