If you like history and hit the right Exhibit its well worth going. Each area brings in a element of Minnesota. Liked the WW2, 1968 and others.

This museum always leaves me with thoughts that I want to share and talk over. You read and see historical events that cause the mind to wonder why? Take in this museum on a day you want to create conversation among friends and family.

This is a good place for both adults and children. The special exhibits are usually top notch. Restaurant has good food and fairly reasonable prices. Very nice gift shops. Worth a visit.

Spent several hours with my 8 year old niece at the History Center. It had lots of interactive exhibits that we're interesting for all ages. We had a great time.

The grain elevator will keep kids busy and climbing for as long as you let them. Weekends they have fun kid activities. There's something for almost any are group - ok teens might be bored quickly if they're not into history, but seniors will like some of the period rooms and younger kids up to 10 or so will have lots to do here.
