We live on 24th Ave and often walk through the grounds with our dog and daughter to enjoy the scenery. The gazebo is lovely and a great spot for photos. The other buildings are also lovely and worth your time if you want to go for a longer walk you can connect with the bike path along the river.

The Thomas Campbell house, the Myra Museum, and several out-buildings, create a small historical village. Excellent tours are conducted by Historical Society volunteers and staff! We had a wonderful afternoon visit there! Very interesting & enjoyable!

I was there for there local car antique car show. The show was great but all the old houses, stores ,school, and buildings were fantastic. The volunteers were especially knowledgeable and very helpful to answer and questions. It was really interesting to see the way it used to be way back in time in Grand Forks. Thanks again it well...

We visited while passing through Grand Forks and were very impressed. The tour guide shared much information on the history of Grand Forks as well as eastern North Dakota. There is much information on the destructive flood Grand Forks experienced awhile back. Also much on the Scandinavian people who settled the area. A+ for the tour guide, and some nice... More

It was SUCH a pleasant surprise to discover the Myra Museum! My husband and I spent nearly two hours stepping back in time and exploring the unique buildings on this charming property. As we entered each well-cared-for building, we were awed by the fantastic collection of period pieces it contained! We even had the luxury of our own highly knowledgable... More

Take the tour through the 5-6 buildings, including a fascinating all-metal home from the 1950s. The main museum isn't much, but the tour gets you into some very interesting original and replica buildings that have been placed on this site.

Occupying several small buildings in a parkland area by the river, this museum is a gem. Forget dark, forbidding halls of tedious exhibits, this is on a very personal scale. See how domestic life really was from the earliest days of the settlement of Grand Forks - walk around a schoolroom - and a frontier post office. There's a wealth... More

Every summer we visit the Myra Museum when our grandchildren visit. They love the museum with interesting exhibits, and the surrounding grounds with the Campbell House, Lustron Home, General Store, and gas station. The grounds are beautiful and a visit here is entertaining, educational and relaxing. The museum hosts an ice cream social and an antique car show during the... More
