Becker County?Museum expands exhibit space
The Becker County Historical Society is proud to announce the opening of the lower level in the Becker County Museum.
This space was closed last winter and spring to allow for an artifact inventory and care project. In addition to the main level, visitors to the museum can now again enjoy seeing the "World's Smallest Gas Station," which stood in front of the Graystone Hotel, horse drawn vehicles used in the county and the crafts display featuring a 4-handle loom.
The Becker County Museum is a great destination for the summer. Museum manager, Carrie Johnston says, "The Museum is a great place to come when the weather is too hot or rainy. Every time you walk through you are bound to learn something about Becker County that you didn't know."
Everyone is invited to take a tour, stop in the gift shop, which features Becker County-made items and books, use the library for genealogical research or just to look at some the thousands of photos in the collection.
You will also have a chance to add your thoughts to the "Time Capsule of Ideas" in honor of Minnesota's Sesquicentennial.
The Becker County Museum is open Tuesday-Saturday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. all summer long. Admission is free; tours are available upon request.
