May is Minnesota Museums Month, and May 18 is International Museum Day. H-Midwest participates in this celebration of the preservation and presentation of the state's culture with the initiation of a new blog, Museums of Minnesota. Throughout the month, directors, curators, other staffers, and volunteers at museums and historical societies around the state will be posting about their work, artifacts in their collections, exhibits, and the rich resources they house. 

Our first post is by Anne Peterson, Museum Director at The Minnesota State Public School Orphanage Museum in Owatonna, Minnesota. It's titled "They Were Children...Not Numbers."

H-Midwest's growing collection of blogs can be found right here. Most of them have a single state focus. Is yours missing? Get in touch at and let's see what we can do!
