Annual Reports


Friends and Key Stakeholders of The Bakken Museum,

Through your generous support and continued commitment to The Bakken Museum, we have been able to spend this past year actively transforming the museum experience to align with our new mission and vision. We are pleased to share our 2016 Annual Report with you.

If you have visited the museum or participated in one of our programs recently, you may have experienced our efforts to expand our impact in the Twin Cities and beyond. We are committed to push the boundaries of innovation and creativity to inspire the next generation of science learners. Over the coming months, The Bakken Museum will continue launch new programs and exhibits that reflect our focus on the intersections of innovation, technology, health and wellness. One of the many exciting changes to expect in this coming year is the introduction of our new brand identity. Look for this change in the fall of 2017.

As you connect to The Bakken Museum’s exhibits, events, and programs in the coming months, we look forward to hearing your perspectives on the direction we are taking with our new mission and vision.

Thank you again for your support and partnership.




Michael Sanders,  Executive Director                                      Hannah Baines, Director of Advancement
