The building is historic and multi-purpose with space for rent for private parties and music events, as well as a historic exhibit area located in a fun section of Lowertown, St. Paul. At the time we were there, the exhibit featured the role/history of Blacks in baseball. The staff was setting up for a wedding reception that was soon to... More

A striking downtown building saved from the wrecking ball, the Landmark Center once served as a federal building, courthouse and main post office. It honors its past while celebrating new fun endeavors. The castle-like structure is distinguished by conical turrets and a Gothic feel. Inside, a courtyard and soaring atrium enable the visitor to see each floor; maybe the idea... More

Thank you! Your great review made our "eyes pop" as well! You had exactly the experience we hope all of our visitors will have when they visit this historic gem! Icing on the cake: refreshments and meeting artists at our free, public reception for the opening of our newest summer building-wide exhibit - Summer Arts Discovery. Do come back and... More

The Landmark Center used to be a post office. A great place to attend at St. Patrick's Day for Irish dancing, food and Irish goods. During the year, it's a fun place to host large parties. If you are visiting, it's neat to walk the solid marble stairs and the old iron elevator. There is a history of the mobs... More

My wife and I stopped for information about nearby attractions. The staff members at the desk provided detailed and specific information. They were polite and patient. While my wife listened attentively, I took several photos of the building's interior. It was an example of an open lobby that ascended for several stories.

I am so pleased our Visitor Information Center staff (who, incidentally, are all volunteers) were able to assist you and help you explore our area. We are quite proud of the number of visitors they assist from around the U.S. and the world! The icing on our cake is that we all love our city and our Metro area, and... More

Your trip to St. Paul should originate here. Located in the heart of this historic city next to Rice Park and the historic St. Paul Hotel, the tourism information office located inside is a wealth of information. Don't forget to check out the many mini-museums, as well as the architecture and the exhibits showcasing the former glory of the original... More

Very little there, it's marketed far better than it is in reality. It would be a good place to see a performance, but that's about it.

Frank, I am so sorry that your visit did not meet your expectations; you visited on quite a busy day for us! I can only assume you were not able to visit our four beautifully restored, historic courtrooms that are filled with history, or visit the free museums on our 2nd Floor: The Schubert Club Museum of early keyboards and...

We attended the Irish Fest at the Landmark Center---what a gorgeous building in downtown St. Paul! I was amazed looking at the building from the outside, and even more impressed inside, the huge open space and the glass ceiling. There are a number of museums in the Landmark Center, but our visit was focused on all the great Irish music... More

We went on a free tour of the center --- with a excellent tour guide. Then listened to a free concert and then went through a free gallery on the Nazi underground. Three hours of good, solid, historical and musical experiences. All free. Amazing.
