Temporary Exhibits

The Goodhue County Historical Society strives to bring a rotating schedule of temporary installations and traveling exhibits to our facility in Red Wing. Twice each year we debut a new installment in our township exhibit series. Visitors will find national and state-wide traveling exhibits in the Main Lobby. Check back often for our most up to date exhibit schedule.
