The Minnesota History Center offers a fantastic overview of, well, Minnesota history. It is particularly awesome for kids as there are LOTS of hands on activities!

Hello - I'm looking for a spot to host our company holiday party. We'd like to account for 30 people and have food and drinks catered. Can you please tell me what options that you offer for this? Thank you!
