The Minnesota Historical Society has announced it’s reducing hours at some historic sites and museums statewide (including Fort Snelling and the Mill City Museum) beginning July 1. The change in hours comes in the wake of the state legislature cutting its funding of the MHS’ operating budget by 8.6%. While hours at many sites are being reduced, no site is being completely closed.

Sites with new hours of operation are:

Alexander Ramsey House, St. Paul: Saturdays 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.; Sundays noon-3 p.m.
