The Ely-Winton Historical Society and Museum

The Ely-Winton Historical Society exists to collect, preserve, and display to the public, artifacts and information relating to the history of our amazing area in northern Minnesota.  Through our Museum, our extensive archive of documents and photos, and various informative events throughout the year, we hope to share with you the story of the shining jewel of the Northland.

Our Museum and Office are open Tuesday through Friday, noon to 4:00 pm throughout the year, as well as Saturdays from noon to 4:00 pm during the Summer months. 


Although admission to the Museum is Free, a suggested donation of $5 per adult is greatly appreciated to continue the efforts of the EWHS.
