We Are Water MN was developed by the Minnesota Humanities Center and its statewide partners, the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency, the Minnesota Historical Society, the Minnesota Department of Health, the Minnesota Section of the American Water Works Association, and the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources.

The exhibition is interactive and shares information on water quality around the state juxtaposed with the voices of multiple Minnesotans including farmers, fishers, canoers, ricers, parents, potters, and teachers reflecting on what water means to them and their lives. The exhibit also provides a space for visitors to add their own water stories. We Are Water MN also raises awareness about the quantity and quality of Minnesota’s water, connecting exhibit-goers to active water solutions.
