one of the biggest counties in the state has the nicest museum and we didn,t even know about the park in back. The Pepsi exhibit and the Hospital exhibits were very informative.

I live in St. Cloud and I have requested help from the resource people related to history of people connected to city government and the St. Cloud Public Library. The staff are so helpful. This museum has over 500,000 images in the library.

Enjoyed looking at the local history. The Pandolfo car was pretty interesting, and the exhibits which focussed on homes in about the 1950's were great. Power on the prairie about the development of electricity was especially interesting.
