       Minnesota History Center Wants Your Help


The Minnesota Historical Society is interested learning more about how to better support the needs and interests of families whose children have disabilities and special health care needs at their museums and exhibits.


Family Voices of Minnesota and Wilder Research are working together to recruit and support families to visit the Then Now Wow Project at the Minnesota History Center in St. Paul and participate in a focus group. 


As a way to say “thank you” to family members for attending the group, we will be offering the following incentives:

  • Meal/snacks for all family members and groups
  • Free admission to the non-program day to visit the Then, Now, Wow! exhibit and the Then, Now, Wow! Family program day
  • Free parking for each visit
  • $50 gift card for each family
  • Passes for each family member to attend MNHS for free at another time


What we want participants to do

  1. One day between now and April 30, 2017 families will bring their children and visit the History Center in St. Paul to specifically visit the Then Now Wow! Exhibit.


  1.  On Sunday April 30, 2017 families will again visit the History Center with their children and attend the Wow Family Sunday Program (which will be a special guided tour and program) and attend a focus group!


The agenda for this day is:


11:00 am: Arrive at the History Center in St. Paul


11:30am-12:00pm: Introductions and lunch for your family(location TBD)


12:00pm-2:00pm:  Families enjoy the family day program


2:00pm-2:30pm: One or both adult family members begin to move to the focus group room.  Children may accompany adult family members to the group, or, if there is more than one parent, they can continue to enjoy family day or go with that parent to the childcare room for a break/snacks as needed.


2:30-4:00 pm: Focus group


4:00-4:30pm: Incentives given and families depart
