The North Star Museum of Boy Scouting and Girl Scouting officially unveiled a new Girl Scout uniform exhibit on Saturday, July 21. Designed by the Girl Scouts River Valleys’ heritage committee, the five cases feature a uniform from every decade of the Girl Scouts’ one hundred year history.
While many people may have seen the artifacts during the Great Girl Gathering, it is worth a trip to the museum as new items such as camp songbooks and alternate uniforms are now included. The exhibit is on loan to the museum for the foreseeable future.
A visit to the museum is an excellent way to introduce girls to the history of Girl Scouting in Wisconsin and Minnesota through pictures, facts and recordings. Located at 2640 E. Seventh Avenue in North Saint Paul, the museum is open Wednesday—Friday from 1–5 p.m., Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sunday–Tuesday as well as evenings by appointment only.
