Use Search MNHS Research Materials to search a variety of records:
Why do some images not have a digital image online?
Most of these images simply haven't been digitized yet, while a few have copyright, cultural, or other reasons for not appearing online. With only a handful of exceptions, researchers who visit the Gale Family Library in person can view prints of any photographs that do not have digital images.
Are all MNHS images in the online search?
No. The majority of our individually-cataloged photos are in the online search. However, most of the photographs that are in State Archives records, manuscript collections, and larger photograph collections are NOT included in the search.
General Search Tips:
Notice that your results are sorted by "Closest Match" by default. You can switch to two different chronological sorts (oldest first or newest first) to make browsing easier.
Use the filters on the left to specify the type of record, place, names, subject, collection, or year.
