Be Part of History!

Minnesota Discovery Center aims to educate and inspire people of all ages through celebration of the past, present and the future of the Iron Range. As a community asset, Minnesota Discovery Center is responsible for preserving and enhancing the integrity of the assets we manage and telling the story of Iron Range history through exhibits, activities and trove of information in our Research Center.

Our members help us accomplish these goals!

Why Should You Be a Member?

Memberships are great for families! Be the first to know about new events, take advantage of event discounts, and enjoy unlimited general admission all year long.  A year of membership offers a lifetime of learning.  

Membership pays for itself in as little as two visits. For the same cost as a family night at the movies, you can enjoy culturally enriching experiences all year long.
