Built in 1910 as the New Ulm Post Office, this brick German Renaissance-style building is on the National Register of Historic Places and is one of the city’s most architecturally distinct structures. Inside, you’ll find three floors of exhibits on the history of Brown County, the U.S. – Dakota War of 1862, and seasonal exhibits. The research library has files on hundreds of families from the county and historic topics. A museum store with books and items related to local history is also available. New Ulm’s historic Popcorn Wagon can be found outside for special events and occasionally on Saturdays during the warm months. This fascinating structure is much more than a gorgeous building!
