May is Minnesota Museum Month

Linden Hill Historic Event Center and Museum is celebrating the kick-off to summer by participating in one of the state’s new traditions: Minnesota Museum Month. The program is a collaboration among museums of all types and aims to raise awareness about Minnesota museums.

Linden Hill observed Minnesota Museum Month with a “Mother’s Day Brunch” in the Musser mansion, which featured a presentation by Heritage Preservation Committee member Marilyn Brown. The volunteer Heritage Preservation Committee also completely redid a number of exhibits for the museum (housed in the Charles and Maud Moon Weyerhaeuser home) which includes “A Downton Abbey Garden Party” exhibit featuring amazing clothing artifacts from the Musser estate.

Another exhibit, “The Lindbergh Connection,” celebrates the four-generation connection between the Lindbergh, Weyerhaeuser and Musser families.

The Linden Hill volunteers will be holding “Lumberjack Days” for Little Falls third grade students in late May. The students will experience what it would have been like to be a lumberjack in Minnesota in the late 1800s.

Linden Hill’s summer tour season begins Wednesday, May 28, and runs through Labor Day. Guided tours are given Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays at 11 a.m. and 1 p.m. throughout the summer. Weekend tours are available by reservation for groups of five or more.

Linden Hill will be holding the grand opening Tuesday – Saturday, May 27 – 31 of Laura Jane’s Shoppe at the school house, in its new on-site location. There guests will find gift items that would relate to Linden Hill families such as gardening, quilting and wood gifts, Little Falls memorabilia, music and art pieces and much more.
