We love history, and the Mill City Museum delivered! Located on the riverfront, Mill City Museum tells the interesting story of the growth and development of the Washburn mill from one man's dream to corporate giant General Mills. There are plenty of exhibits, and the elevator tour is unique -- I've never seen anything like it. This gem is a must-see attraction in Minneapolis!

We brought our one year old, and really enjoyed the vintage feel of this museum. The displays are very well done, as others have commented. We also enjoyed the overall aesthetic of a small well cared for property. Our favorites was the time lapse video montage, and the various bear calls. We didn't encounter any other patrons during our visit, which meant we had the place to ourselves! We enjoyed the interactive hands on discovery area, with many activities for littles and adults alike.

Thanks to a recommendation from a waitress at Sanctuary, I had the opportunity to visit this wonderful bridge. The views at night are spectacular! You can stand in the middle and get a view of the city lights illuminating from downtown Minneapolis. You can also see the ruins of an old flour mill from the Minneapolis side of the bridge. At night the light reflects off the ruins and almost looks like it's out of the middle ages. I would say this place is perfect for a night walk.
