We went there with our 4-H club and all the kids had a great time. There were plenty of activities to keep all ages occupied. Very historical for this area. The large elevator ride was really great.

Highlights were a large elevator tour which is more like a ride. Each floor the elevator stops on has an interesting display with moving machinery. The top floor you get off on has more of the old mill and a great balcony that overlooks the city. The main floor has mostly kid displays. There is a $2 coupon online. Everything can be done in 2 hours or less so park on the street.

Mill City is more than just a Museum, it is an interactive look at the history of Minneapolis, and the industry that helped it grow. It doesn't compare to the science museum for volume of displays, but it has interesting hands on hydro dynamic demonstrations for how the St Anthony dam serviced all the mills of the area. We brought General Mills friends from India there so they could see some of the evolution of the grain industry, and growth of the Minneapolis area.

The Mill City Museum is a great place to learn about Minneapolis. When we have guests we often take them here whatever their age. Start with the video about the founding of Minneapolis narrated by Kevin Kling. Take the freight elevator ride through Mill City’s history. Observe the river and the skyline from the viewing platform. Last tour the many exhibits. The Museum is also home to the Mill City Opera, a farmer’s market, cafe, and community forums. Enjoy!
