BCHS Changing Exhibits 07 Oct 11

This Saturday is the last day to see the Brown County Historical Society exhibit “Brushstrokes From The Past.” The artwork from past Brown County artists has been on display at the Brown County Museum in New Ulm since April 2009. The Historical Society’s Pam Kitzberger says the Dakota War exhibit on the third floor of the museum will be coming down in the near future as well to prepare for the sesquicentennial commemoration of the conflict next year. The last day to see the exhibit as it is now will be Friday, October 21st. The new Dakota Uprising exhibit will then open next year. The current Dakota War exhibit has been on display at the museum since 1984. Several updates and renovations will be taking place at the museum in preparation of the 150th anniversary of the conflict.
