Restrained Art Deco beauty hides behind the sleek, minimal facade. The lobby and statue are not be missed with stunning black stone and gold leaf materials. Various wood species are used on each floor. Worth a the quick pass through security to marvel at this wonder.

One of St. Paul's secret treasures. A magnificent building with stunning architecture. Check out the "ELEVATOR DOORS"..... gorgeous. My Grandfather was one of the designers.

One of the best examples of Art Dec Architecture in the entire nation. The use of 5 stories of black marble with brass railings and all to centerpiece the 4 sstory white onyx indian sculpture. Truly a worthwhile stop if visiting the city. Built in the depths of the depression I would imagine as a employment project no expense was... More

You have to walk inside this beautiful building to see how much care was taken to build it and then be amazed when you find out that it was in the midst of the Depression. The huge statue of passing the Peace Pipes is very interesting! Go up to the library at the top and see great views of the... More

This is a spectacular hidden moderne wonder in downtown Saint Paul! Memorial Hall evokes the feeling of entering a grand, ancient native american space-traveling "ship" (ha!). Scanners and security are a now-necessary hurdle to enter the space - very worth the hassle to experience these spaces. Don't miss: - Exterior art - Elevator Doors - Memorial Hall with Vision of...

I visited here many years ago as a child to see the tremendous statute, then known as Indian God of Peace. Had a brief visit 30 years ago when doing business in the building. Both times was quite taken with the statue. This week I am here for jury duty (a common reason for visiting), and am taken each day... More

Had been in this building many times having lived in St. Paul all my life. This is really a beautiful building with some local history to behold. Courtrooms are unique and interesting.

As you enter this art deco building, and go through security, you will see a huge white onyx statue, Vision of Peace. The building includes wood and marble from all around the world. Worth a visit.

The architecture is the attraction here. Art Deco themes are evident in light fixtures, door handles, lobby mailbox, building facade. stairs and railings, and thin vertical lines throughout. There is also an amazing 36 foot tall onyx status that rises almost 3 stories in the rear hallway/atrium. Tourists can get a handout for a self-guided walk thru and staff is... More
