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.

Great ambience for a wedding and the venue is quickly transformed to comfortable dining for +300 while guests can mingle on the atrium corridore above. Unlike other venues where people are in a large group, this atrium view allows for easy movement and the benefit of mingling with any or all present.

It IS a gorgeous wedding venue - thank you for saying so in your very kind review. Our wedding clients love the sweeping 4-story atrium skylight and courtyard for their "fairy-tale" weddings! What you experienced was a "change-over," during which, wedding ceremonies are then transformed into wedding receptions in coordination with our building staff and the catering staff.

My husband and I stumbled upon this beautiful building while attending the St Paul Winter Carnival on a Saturday. The 2 museums were closed but we could walk around the building. There are interesting historical photo displays around the landings that explain the usage and history of the building. There was also a tourist information kiosk on the main floor;... More

This was the original Federal Courthouse in the Minnesota area. The exterior is unbelievably beautiful, and the interior is nearly so. The interior is built around a huge central atrium, with light streaming down from the glass roof. Each floor has something interesting to see, although most of the office space is now used for various civic or artistic endeavors.... More

The Landmark Center is a delightful building to tour, to appreciate art, history, book discussions, music gatherings, and special events/parties. Most activities are free and you can find out about them by visiting the website http://www.landmarkcenter.org. At the recent "Once Upon a Time Gala" we stepped back a hundred years ago to the 1913-1919 era. The submitted photos capture attendees... More
