Support Minnovation

Minnovation is the Science Museum of Minnesota’s celebration of STEM innovation in our great state. Minnesota inventions, from household gadgets to medical devices, have been pushing the limits of science, technology, engineering, and math for decades. This year, with your help and support, The Science Museum of Minnesota will celebrate innovation in Minnesota with a series of experiences we’re calling Minnovation. We will infuse the museum and our web site with stories of Minnesota innovation through exhibits, events, a special Minnovation showcase, and more. The Science Museum has been sparking innovation for generations with world-class science education, exhibitions, films, and experiences.

During Minnovation, we’re making way for Minnesota’s greatest inventors and innovators to tell their stories. Our Minnovation showcase exhibit and the Minnovation landing page, combined with homegrown stories of innovation presented throughout the museum, will reinforce our  guests’ pride about Minnesota and spark the minds of those who will keep us on the cutting edge of innovation.
