Cool old building to warm up in in winter

We always visited during Winter Carnival in January. A place to warm up a bit. An elegant building - mostly offices now. Often a small historic display. It had a little basic cafe.

I am not so sure that many people know about this little gem. This building holds a lot of history. We were able to view several exhibits relating to the history behind the building. It has changed hands and purposes many times throughout history. Today it can be rented out for weddings, holds offices, and has many museum artifacts on... More

Back in the days before electricity, buildings had open atriums from floor to ceiling and skylights to let in light. This is one such beautiful building built in the 1890s. Walk each floor, look up at the ceiling windows and poke your nose into any of the open rooms that have been restored --including old court rooms. The Shubert Museum... More

The building is spectacular to see from the outside, and when you first walk in, the great hall is beautiful as well. I really couldn't find anything else to see or do there though. Maybe it's just over-marketed. It is a lovely structure.

The center had a lot of information and pictures. It was very interesting to read all the history and it is a free attraction. I would definitely recommend.

This is a must see in St. Paul for the history, the beautiful rooms open for viewing with a shop and food. Wonderful musical instrument museum and wood carving exhibit/sale. It is across the street from Mears Park which is worth a visit as well.

Many well known gangsters have passed through these doors. If you go down stairs there is a small exhibit on the history of the building. The open atrium is beautiful and worth the stop if you are in the area. In December and January there is a small free ice rink just outside the building.
