Visited as a couple, but would be great for people of all ages. What a fun way to learn about the milling business, the building, and the general area! We've been to the area several times and recently found this gem and so glad we did! Well worth your time and good way to spend a few hours! Be sure to ride the elevator and watch the video!

My boys and I visited the Mill City Museum in Minneapolis and this has been by far one of our all-time favorite museums.  This museum is in an old flour mill and it has displays that are interactive, a baking lab and a grain elevator experience that takes you to the top of the museum. This museum is not overly crowded so the boys were able to do all of the activities without lines or crowds.  Our favorite part of the museum (aside from the baking lab!) was the level of interaction that the museum employees or volunteers that came with us to the top of the museum and the number of questions they answered for my boys. 5 stars for patience, knowledge and the best most friendly attitude we have experienced at a museum. I would recommend this museum to ages 5+, there are several opportunities for smaller children, but it is limited and not centered around the idea that its a children's museum.  The boys were able to participate in all of the activities and learned so much about flour. We came upon this museum really by accident and did not have any prior plans to make a visit here.  We also happened upon a farmer's market (it was a Saturday) that was happening both inside and outside of the ground floor of the museum entrance.  It was a treat to get to see local vendors, grab a snack and find some local makers.

Visited with wife and 17 yr old daughter. We all thought it was great. It was STEM day so perhaps there was a bit more going on than normal, but for $30 total, it was well worth the 2.5 hours. Minneapolis movie is well done. Flour tower is extremely well done and observation deck is great (exterior closed in winter). We all felt it was well worth our time. Highly recommended.

Our waitress suggested the Museum since it was close and walkable. Took the tour. Very informative. Plus they have a movie of the history of Minneapolis. It was a great day. They also had an indoor farmers market with lots of selections from local vendors. The market is 2 Sat/mo and ends at 1pm. And a cafe and gift shop.

What a great way to learn the history of millingIn Minnesota, from the everyday to the horribly dangerous. And a fun collection of cookbooks too. Even I, a big believer in Twin Cities history and bragging rights, learned a mountain of new information!
