Things to Do


The National Parks Passport program is a great way to explore the over 400 units of the National Park Service. Purchase your passport book at the Explore Store (right across from our visitor center) in the lobby of the Science Museum of Minnesota) or at most national park visitor centers. Passport books also may be purchased online. Then start obtaining cancellation stamps at each national park you visit, a great way to remember your visit to our National Parks.

The cancellation stamps are also available at most NPS visitor centers, or ask a ranger where you can have your passport book stamped. Some parks have multiple stamps distributed around their park.

Stamping Station Locations
