We were really just looking to "pass time" for a few hours. We din't expect to become too engaged in the exhibits since neither my husband nor myself are from Minnesota. However, this museum is very well done and should appeal to anyone who has the least interest in the development of a northern US state. A few exhibits were closed off, so that was disappointing, but all in all we enjoyed the time we spent. Besides interesting and informative exhibits, the building itself was spotlessly clean.
