The “Monday Morning Museum Update” is here to keep you updated on what staff and volunteers are doing in your community every day in serving and celebrating the history of Lindsborg and the surrounding region. This weekly update both looks back at what happened last week and look ahead at what’s coming.


  • Tomorrow (Tuesday, November 29) we’re having a new special event for Giving Tuesday (the first Tuesday after Thanksgiving). Please come for museum admission by “Pay What Your Heart Tells You” and be generous! You can also make a one-off donation of any amount via Paypal or help with a critical sustaining membership. Thank you for helping keep the museum strong!
