This is an excellent place to view exhibits of various types, research your genealogy in their excellent libraries, get old pictures of the area generations before, excellent dining with a wide selection of menu items and a unique gift shop. There are also educational classes offered on various subjects. Fun and educational for all ages.

This is a Vvry nice museum. They have interesting exhibits and extremely friendly staff. I did not get a chance to see everything they had to offer due to a time constraint, but enjoyed the time I spent there.

Lovely building with several interesting exhibits. Enjoyed the "Open House, If Walls Could Talk" where they followed the history of one house in St. Paul and its residents through the century. Very well done, amateur genealogists will love this exhibit. Great views of the Capitol and Cathedral from the museums terraces.

Got a chance to find out the historical center offers for students, teachers and parents.

We are very blessed to have access to this resource in the twin cities.
