Fantastic First-Time Event Success

Derby Night at the Museum, a November 4 adult event including racing pinewood derby cars, silent auction, and fellowship, was a success! We extend our thanks to our community sponsors, Anchor Bank, Aldi's, Carpenter's Small Engine, Donatelli's Pizza, Ideal Credit Union, Luther Auctions, Menards, T.A. Schifsky and Sons, and Jerome Ekblad, for their support. In addition, there were many individual sponsors of the silent auction. To see more information, click here.

Join in the Fun Now!

The North Star Museum is growing by leaps and bounds and we are at a critical stage of growth. Dreams, ideas and wishes are coming to fruition. We are doing more, offering more and more people know about us. :That means we have had more demands for our resources. Without your help...our growth will come to a screeching halt. Check out the many options listed on this page.

These opportunities are FUN and enriching. We’d love to have you share your many talents with us! Contact Diana Foss, 651-748-2880 or

Club Bruce

“Club Bruce,” our NEW Jr. Museum Membership for kids is a big hit! Any child up to 11 years old can join, and it's just $35 a year.

Kids love the Bruce the Moose Adventure Pack with a reflective backpack, water bottle, moose plush, and compass/whistle/flashlight!

Parents love the membership benefits like discounts on merchandise in the gift shop, discounts on programs and meetings, and invitations to members only events!

BOTH kids and parents will love the quarterly newsletter, “Moose News”, that goes out to all Club Bruce members with information about moose and other Minnesota wildlife, the environment, events at the museum, milestones in Scouting history, etc. Click here to see the Spring issue.

And here’s something REALLY COOL. We are sharing a percentage of the proceeds from all Club Bruce memberships with the Moose Research Project of the Minnesota DNR. This is a team of researchers committed to saving our Minnesota moose and trying to discover why the Minnesota populations of moose are dropping.

Club Bruce is a great educational tool for parents, teachers and Scout leaders, and also makes a wonderful gift for that special kid or little Boy Scout or Girl Scout!

Be a part of the adventure! Join Club Bruce TODAY! Contact Diana (Bruce’s assistant!) at
