Flashlight Clueseum

The Flashlight Clueseum is back at Minnesota Discovery Center for the Halloween season on October 21st & 28th at 8PM!

Sometimes, the things you see in the shadows are more than just shadows. Flashlight Clueseum is back and we need you to solve the mystery but this time, in the dark.  The clues are harder than ever and the dark will definitely make things more difficult! 

The game starts at 8pm.  Fastest to finish will win a prize!  

Never played?  It’s like the game Clue to an extent.  You must solve the riddles provided to rule out who did it, with what weapon, and in what room.  As you read the riddles, you’ll be directed to a specific part of the museum or exhibit.  There you will try to pin point what the riddle exactly means and you will find a picture of a person or weapon (not obvious mind you – this is going to be HARD!).  Once you find that picture, you will cross that picture off of your clue board and that means that the picture you found is not the answer to the mystery (aka the murderer or the weapon used).  If you like solving riddles – this game is for you!

To play the game, it only costs $10 per Non-Member, $9 per Member

Glen Location Flashlight Tours logo

Glen Location Flashlight Tours

Get ready for a spooky & historic time at Minnesota Discovery Center with the return of their Glen Location Flashlight Tours! Just in time for Halloween! There’s something spooky about being in a historic place… in the dark! Come ride our historic trolley and get a tour of the Glen Location after hours. Guests can bring in their own flashlights, but it’s scarier in the dark! 

There’s something about October that makes everything just a little spookier, maybe it’s the chill in the air or how the hours seem to wind back and the dark creeps up faster than those daylit summer hours. Mix that together with a historic location and the heaviness of October night and you have a recipe for some spooky fun! Great idea to bring the kids out for, or bring a date!

If you have not experienced the Glen Location Flashlight Tours before it’s absolutely something to experience and is the perfect way to dip your toes into the Halloween season! Try and find your way there, by flashlight or braving the dark!

Call 218-254-7959 to make your reservation for one of the following times:

  • 7pm
  • 8pm
  • 9pm

Tickets are $14 per Non-Member, $13 per Member

LOD Dart Tournament Fundraiser logo

LOD Dart Tournament Fundraiser

Sidelines will be holding a LOD Dart Tournament Fundraiser on September 17th to benefit the upcoming Chisholm Splash Pad! Sign ups will begin at 2PM and the tournament itself will begin at 3PM.

It is $10 per person to enter into the LOD Dart Tournament Fundraiser and all proceeds will be going toward the splash pad. There will also be raffles and prizes to be had as well!


LOD: Luck of the Draw, meaning that partners are chosen at random. It is a double elimination tournament which means that losing two games will disqualify you from winning.

The Splash Pad will be a great addition to our city and Chisholm Kiwanis and the community have gotten so far in getting the necessary funds to get the project rolling! It is estimated that construction will begin on the Splash Pad in the Spring of 2023. Not only will it be a great place to bring the kids during those hot summer days, but it will help drive in more traffic to the area which means more money for local businesses! (And that’s a great thing!)

Get in on the tournament or donate directly to help Chisholm in getting the remaining funds!

What does VEMA do?

  • VEMA seeks to lift up the voices of all citizens of the community that experience discrimination or prejudice, to enact change, and educate the community, all while providing resources for those affected.
  • VEMA was founded in the spring of 2020 following the murder of George Floyd in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Seraphia Gravelle (Aguallo), Elizabeth Robinson (Allen), and Nathaniel Coward began the work of educating the community and providing a voice for people of color throughout the region. Historically there has been a lack of representation as well as complaints and concerns falling on the deaf ears of the leaders of the regional community. VEMA stands united to work against racism and injustice. Through educating not only the members of VEMA but also the community surrounding them, they intend on chipping away at the systemic and blatant racism that exists throughout their community. In addition to education, a priority of VEMA is to ensure accurate and adequate representation as the community as a whole works to disrupt racism and discrimination.
  • Cultivate Relationships: Attend one of our gatherings, events, or just hang out at the Center have coffee/tea and chat with others.
  • Lending Library: Check out books on social justice, history, culture, and children’s books.
