The Stearns History Museum has the key to your Valentine's Heart, with their "Unlock Your Love...and Make History" fundraiser.

You can purchase a ticket to unlock three boxes at the museum. Winning tickets will be drawn on Wednesday, February 10th at 4 pm. Each one of the tickets will match a key that unlocks one of three boxes.

Prizes include:

  • Two chances for a romantic dinner for two at Jule's Bistro with drinks provided by Pantown Brewing.
  • A beautiful SOHO Sterling Silver Bangle Bracelet
  • Free outdoor wedding venue rental at the Stearns History Museum, including two hours of photography. This prize can be gifted to someone you know as well.

Each of the prizes also includes a behind-the-scenes tour of the Museum collections (archives and 3D collections) at a later date, plus a bouquet of flowers.
