Budget cuts mean higher admission at historic sites

State budget cuts mean higher admission prices at museums and historic sites run by the Minnesota Historical Society.

That means $1 more to get into the Minnesota History Center, Historic Fort Snelling and Mill City Museum, which are raising prices to $11 for adults and $9 for students and seniors.

And they’ll be asking for voluntary donations to take the free public tour of the state Capitol building in St. Paul.

Nineteen full-time staff positions have been cut, too, in response to a $1.6 million cut to the state agency, Director Steve Elliot told WCCO news.
