Families, and more than 1,300 museums across America to offer free admission to all active duty military personnel and their families from Memorial Day

Museum Expansion Now Complete
The Freeborn County Historical Museum nears completion. The museum has new look and
many new things to offer as many new displays and changes are still taking place as things

museum-sponsored events, a quarterly newsletter,
and because of your support, the museum, and
library remain open and available to the public.
