Minnesota Historical Society Hours: changed for the better

It's been really difficult to work at the Minnesota Historical Society in recent years due to the changed hours. There were too many days where the limited hours barely allowed you to get settled in, request a set of records or wait to make copies from microfilm, and boom, it was time to leave.

As of December 1, 2012 the hours will be better for researchers. We now have four almost full days for research plus the one evening that has not changed. I have researched at MHS for 30 years and remember when it was open all day, six days a week. Many researchers have complained and some of us were assured of a change more than a year ago. It has finally happened.

The great catalog, helpful guides, and finding aids may be found at www.mnhs.org

The new hours:

Tuesday: noon to 8pm
Wed. - Sat.: 9am to 4pm
Sunday: Closed
Monday: Closed

That's really great news - usually it's the other way around - or closed completely.
