I live in St. Cloud and I have requested help from the resource people related to history of people connected to city government and the St. Cloud Public Library. The staff are so helpful. This museum has over 500,000 images in the library.

It would be worth it for a family. I went with my wife and although it was nice, it wasn't really suited for a young couple. There are a lot of interesting and fun things to see and do. Again, worth it if you don't...More

I believe it is. They have a decent sidewalk entry. I think they also have an elevator or ramps to the second level. I would call they to make sure. Not sure about restrooms, though, since I don't remember using while there.
