Bakken Library and Museum


The Bakken Museum is a non-profit educational organization dedicated to inspiring youth to pursue a life in science for the benefit of humanity. The Bakken was founded in 1975 by Earl E. Bakken, who invented the first transistorized cardiac pacemaker. Located in an intriguing mansion on Lake Calhoun, The Bakken features The Florence Bakken Medicinal Garden, and a world-renowned collection of books and artifacts on the history and impact of electricity. The Bakken Museum is at the corner of West Calhoun Parkway and 36th Street on the west shore of Lake Calhoun. Free parking is available in The Bakken’s lot.
