Give to the MAX - November 13, 2014

Once again the North Star Museum joins hundreds of non-profits in celebrating the biggest giving day of the year!

When you make a gift to the North Star Museum (by clicking on the words "Give to the MAX" anywhere on this page), you are helping to ensure our innovative programs, and wonderful exhibits continue! We need your help to replenish our core – to make us sustainable for the next generation and beyond. We are here for YOU. We collect your memories and your stories, preserving them for future generations. No one else does that. We are unique!

Now is the time to give!

Our Board of Directors has put together a matching fund for our year end appeal, to show their support and to help us “kick start” our Give to the MAX Day efforts! When you click on any Give to the MAX on this page and make a gift, your donation is matched dollar for dollar! Our matching grant doubles your gift! All you have to do is click! It’s so easy!

Any donation you make from November 1 'til the end of the day on November 13 will go towards our Give to the MAX Day totals.

Your gift continues to help the museum as each gift makes us eligible to win the Golden Tickets and Grand Prize monies that GiveMN has become famous for!

Many thanks to you for your continued support of the North Star Museum!

The Boy Scout and Girl Scout memories that normally exist only in your heart have safe haven here, and we value your experiences.

Help us to continue this important work.

Overnight at the Museum – Camping Adventure

Give ‘camping out’ a new spin with an overnight campout at the North Star Museum of Boy Scouting & Girl Scouting!

You bring your sleeping bag and a sense of adventure and we do the rest!

Our ‘camp counselors’ have the girls and boys busy, busy with all kinds of fun activities and crafts that include campfire with s’mores, songs, skits, Pinewood Derby track, a movie and more! Then it’s lights out to sleep in the gallery in sleeping bags and tents. IN the morning it’s more activities and crafts, a pancake breakfast and take home souvenirs!

This event can be customized to fit your Scouting unit's needs!

An absolute bargain at just $50 per person (with $100 deposit and minimum of 15 people) and a GREAT way for troops and families to bond and have fun! (And this is a great event for little campers who are camping for the first time!) Boys, check out this flyer; and girls, check out this flyer for additional details.

While all of the scheduled weekends for 2014 are full, contact Shirley at to get on the waiting list.

Club Bruce

“Club Bruce,” our NEW Jr. Museum Membership for kids is a big hit! Any child up to 11 years old can join, and it's just $35 a year.

Kids love the Bruce the Moose Adventure Pack with a reflective backpack, water bottle, moose plush, and compass/whistle/flashlight!

Parents love the membership benefits like discounts on merchandise in the gift shop, discounts on programs and meetings, and invitations to members only events!

BOTH kids and parents will love the quarterly newsletter, “Moose News”, that goes out to all Club Bruce members with information about moose and other Minnesota wildlife, the environment, events at the museum, milestones in Scouting history, etc. Click here to see the Spring issue.

And here’s something REALLY COOL. We are sharing a percentage of the proceeds from all Club Bruce memberships with the Moose Research Project of the Minnesota DNR. This is a team of researchers committed to saving our Minnesota moose and trying to discover why the Minnesota populations of moose are dropping.

Club Bruce is a great educational tool for parents, teachers and Scout leaders, and also makes a wonderful gift for that special kid or little Boy Scout or Girl Scout!

Be a part of the adventure! Join Club Bruce TODAY! Contact Shirley (Bruce’s assistant!) at
