North Star Museum of Boy Scouting & Girl Scouting
North St. Paul, MN
North Star Scouting Memorabilia, Inc was founded in 1976 as a Nonprofit Corporation. Our worldwide collections cover both Boy Scouting and Girl Scouting. We are not financially supported by either the Boy Scouts of America or the Girl Scouts of the United States of America. Support for the Museum and all of its programs come from both membership fees and generous Friends of the Museum donations. In addition to being a nonprofit corporation North Star is also a Federal 501(c)(3) organization. As such all contributions are tax deductible as allowed by law.
During the past 28 years, North Star Scouting has acquired over 150,000 items of memorabilia. These include uniforms, books, magazines, pictures, movies, tapes, histories records and many other artifacts. About 3000 additional items are acquired every year. Over 98% of the items in our collection were donated, not purchased by the museum. We are constantly looking for Scouting memories and memorabilia to fill in our collections and we welcome donations.
North Star Scouting is basically an all volunteer organization. You do not have to be an active or past member of the Boy Scouting or Girl Scouting to become a member of the Museum. Those persons who support our mission are always welcome. We have members from across the country. To become a member complete a membership application . For additional information contact us at 651-739-8857.
Your donations help:
We will use donations to support general operations in a new 10,500 square foot building purchased by the museum in 2005. This is our first home and allows us, for the first time, to serve all of our publics in a fixed location. We can now offer lectures, classes, workshops, and special events.
There are many ways you can get involved.
