New Curator at the Brown County Museum!
Ryan Harren, Brown County Historical Society

The Willkommen Committee of the New Ulm Area Chamber of Commerce stopped at the Brown County Historical Society to welcome Ryan Harren as the museum’s new curator! A 2011 graduate of Minnesota State University-Mankato with a master’s degree in history, Ryan is from Rice, MN, and has previously worked at other county museums including ones in Rochester, Steele & Olmstead Counties. As the curator, Ryan chooses, assembles and disassembles the 3D museum collection; basically anything not printed or photographed. A few things Ryan has in store at the museum include getting more seasonal exhibits on display and will be a part of putting together a large, first floor exhibit for 2020.  Stop by to see his newest exhibit “A History of Brown County’s Hair-itage.” Welcome to New Ulm, Ryan!
