Nice panorama of the city . Lovely little museum at the top as well. The lady was really nice at the lobby and did not ask any money for the entrance.

The Forshay Tower is a beacon of history in the heart of Minneapolis. Offering great views over the city, this building is a must see stop on a nice day!

Called in early Monday 11.30am and observation deck was open. There was no one else on the 30th floor which was awesome to have the whole area to ourselves. Really worth making the stop. Also go next door to Grayfox coffee, perfect

We found this spur of the moment and were glad we tried it out. The building has a very interesting history and beautiful views from the observation deck. The pub was gorgeous and the drinks were great! Might stay here next time in town!

Going to the top of the Foshay (built in 1929) was educational and very interesting. Nice summary of events - nice view of the city I would recommend!

It is open to the public. We paid $10 a person to go up. I believe that hotel guests go up for free.
