We walked from the basement to the fourth floor. The architecture is wonderful and it is a blessing that this building was not destroyed.

I took my father and son there as we spent a day walking around downtown St Paul. The building is beautiful and full of lots of interesting things, museum like. I believe they also do weddings or wedding receptions there as well. A place to check out. It's free and you just might see some cool unique things too.

We were staying across the street at the St. Paul Hotel so made the short walk to the Landmark Center. The building was the old Federal Building which housed the Post Office, Federal Court, Customs, the FBI and many other agencies. It was abandoned and fell into disrepair by the late '70's when it was scheduled for demolition. The townspeople... More

we went in this building on a lark and ended up staying for hours. we loved it. we like seeing buildings that were rescued from the wrecking ball and turned into a useful yet historic building. actually, its not that old - nothing in the twin cities really is. but relatively speaking its as good as it gets.take your time....

Didn't think much of this place as we were just going to check out the visitor center. But this building used to hold state and federal employees and even a court system. We walked each floor and there was art and historical facts on the walls. Nice architecture also and worth the time to walk around
