The society operates a museum focusing on the history of Scott County near Minneapolis. "Today, our collections include books, photographs, artifacts, oral histories, newspapers and other material limited to items related to Scott County and its residents," the website states.

The museum is housed in a 1908 Dutch Colonial building that was the boyhood home of Maurice Stans, who served as Secretary of Commerce during the Nixon Administration. The museum's construction was financed by a grant from the Stans Foundation.
