Gorgeous art deco

A gorgeous art deco building overlooking the Mississippi River. doubles as St. Paul City Hall. The lobby is stunning. GO to the basement to see historic photos.

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

Few quality examples of art-deco municipal buildings remain as the conservation movement that began in the 1970's and 80's didn't place a historic value on them in comparison to turn-of-the-century architecture. Arranged tours (http://www.co.ramsey.mn.us/cm/manager/CourthouseTours.htm) of the Ramsey County Courthouse are a unique and comprehensive view of one of the defining structures of the city's skyline and history. Tours are lead... More

It's a courthouse--no reason to go unless you need a marriage license, right? Actually, there is a two-story high carved statue of a Native American man in the lobby, just past the security gate. It rotates on its pedestal, and has a waterfall behind it, and is quite stunning to see. Duck inside the door and take a peek when... More

One fo the first things you may see if you enter from the 4th street side is the large peace sculpture. Make sure you take the time to read the significance of this piece. As you walk in the courthouse you will see a wide variety of spectacular marble and wood work done with very a selection of prime wood.... More
