Built with the Federal Budget Surplus money of the late 1880s, and opening in about 1902, this gem of federal largess was luckily saved from the wrecking ball and is today home to a variety of community artistic groups. The building is beautiful but the real value is in the free tour, where you learn about the building's history and... More

Make sure to visit Landmark Center if you're in downtown St. Paul and love old architecture. The old St. Paul courthouse was thankfully spared the wrecking ball. The atrium is stunning. Be sure to check out the beautifully ornate courtrooms within the building, too. Also, visit the Schubert Club Museum on the second floor to see a fine antique musical... More

Thank you, so much! Our Visitor Information Service Desk volunteers couldn't have said it any better than you did. Visitors should allow plenty of time to stroll through the building, or perhaps take a guided tour, and then visit our two free museums. Good thing we have a restaurant in the building, because a 3 - 4 hour visit is... More

Thank you, Thaddeus! Landmark is a wonderful specimen of architectural styles and a treasure trove of local history! Indeed, the American Association of Woodturners Gallery of Wood Art and the Schubert Club Museum are among the best free museums in Saint Paul Do stop back for a free guided tour Thursdays at 11am and Sundays at 12pm - no reservation...

Self-guided tour to learn history of the building and some interesting things that happened there, like John Dillinger's trial and conviction. Five story building with noteworthy items on each floor, plus areas to stop and rest throughout.

Thanks, Joe, for your kind remarks about our beautiful and historic Landmark Center! I am so glad you were able to visit, and self-tour throughout the building. I must make one correction, however: although many famous gangsters from the 1930s were brought to trial in Landmark Center, John Dillinger was not among them! Although Dillinger resided in Saint Paul for... More

The Landmark Center is an historic building in the center of St. Paul. You can usually count on various events during the weekends and during weekdays there are small museums and musical events scheduled. Check an events calendar. And when you're there visit some of the historic courtrooms in the building. Well worth the time.

We visited the Landmark Center for my cousin's wedding on Friday, October 11. It was absolutely lovely - you walk up the stairs into the Landmark Center and the wedding was right there in front of you. You look up to see several stories of beautiful architecture, grand columns, etc. After the ceremony, you are whisked upstairs for an hour... More

This is a beautifully restored and repurposed former federal building. It's free to wander around and admire. There are historic exhibits on most floors dealing with all sorts of aspects of Minnesota history and the Federal government's role. It is worth the time to wander around and read them. There are also a few small museums in the building -... More

Thank you for your very kind review! Although Landmark Center's interpretive displays make it easy to undertake a self-guided tour, we do offer FREE public tours (no reservation required!) on Sundays at 12:00 noon and Thursdays at 11:00 a.m. So glad your group was able to tour our lovely, historic work of art!

This is one of the most beautiful buildings I have ever been in. My daughter has practices there and while she practices I enjoy the amazing architecture. I am so glad it was preserved!
