A Northwoods Winter…

A Northwoods Winter… is coming back to take you to a world of simplicity, ease, excitement, and great fun! November 7 marks the return of this seasonal exhibit that will help make another long Minnesota winter shorter and warmer.

Experience the winter wonderland indoors, all while show shoeing, skiing, or gathering the dogs for a sledding outing. You may ice fish, build a snowman, or participate in a snowball fight! After enjoying the great Minnesota outdoors, gather in front of the fireplace and enjoy the charm, warmth, and magic of a handcrafted quintessential cabin. There are games, gingerbread cookies to bake, as well as outdoor stories to be shared by the fire. Roast marshmallows, put puzzles together, and look through photo albums. That cozy feeling is right here, at the Children’s Museum!


A Northwoods Winter… was originally installed in 2017 and the initial sponsors of the exhibits were Lloyd Lumber, Mehltretter Custom Carpentry, Tom Hagen, Taylor Corporation.
