The State Historical Society of North Dakota develops traveling exhibits that are available for circulation to libraries, school, museums, and other nonprofit educational institutions. Exhibits cover a range of topics related to North Dakota. Exhibits are available on a first-come, first-serve basis so it is best to make requests early. Each exhibit is generally available for eight weeks at a time. This includes a six week installation with an additional two weeks to allow for shipping, installation, de-installation, and return shipping. Extensions may be accommodated only if they do not interfere with other reservations. Host institutions pay a small fee and shipping charges, and must meet certain security and facility requirements.
