One of the first children's museums in the country, the Duluth Children's Museum opened in 1930 as a resource for teachers, schoolchildren and families to learn more about their world neighbors. The organization's name was changed to the A.M. Chisholm Museum in 1954 following the donation of the Chisholm family residence, which was used as a permanent home for the Museum. In 1975, the Museum relocated to the Depot and it became a member organization of the St. Louis County Heritage and Arts Center. The organization reclaimed its original name in 1994.
