Closed to visitors, open to donations

A sign from a more optimistic time – fall 2019

We had hoped to reopen the Museum for Sugar Beet Days 2020 this June, but that is not happening – the reopening, or Sugar Beet Days. At this point, we can’t say for sure when we will be open to the public as we are operating with an abundance of caution during the Covid-19 pandemic. What we can say is that we are using this time to do some much-needed renovations and updates to our space and we look forward to sharing the changes with you whenever that becomes possible.

If you are using this time to do some housecleaning, please keep the Museum in mind if you find anything you think might be worth donating! We are currently in search of Sugar Beet Days memorabilia and photos, and we are always looking for objects of interest to the history of Renville. We can’t accept everything — at this time, we aren’t accepting any dishes, newspapers, or clothing including military uniforms — but we welcome all questions. Please contact historicrenville@gmail.com or call Rachel at 320.979.9185 to find out if we have a place for your donation and to arrange a drop-off time.

We wish the Renville community the best!
