Minnesota History Center
Housing a collection of more than 100,000 objects and 500,000 documents, this is a must-stop for residents and tourists alike. The dramatic setting alone is worth the trip. Inside the History Center, past times are alive and well. 'Minnesota A to Z,' an ingenious depiction of various aspects of Minnesota life over the past 150-plus years, will jog the memories of longtime residents. Kids can climb inside a full-size boxcar and replica of a grain elevator. Changing exhibits use interactive techniques, recordings and videos to make history lessons painless.
Wonderful atmosphere, presentations, availability for handicapped as well as all.
polite assistance and interested personel...neat, clean and the cafe is an added bonus. always look forward to what is coming next???
Interesting exhibits and varied topics.
increases awareness and interest and intellect applicable to ALL age groups.
I am very proud of our History Center.
We lived in Minnesota for half our adult life and then moved to Arizona.
The Minnesota History Center in St, Paul. Brought us back home to the things we forgot. As if the 25 years being gone vanished and our recollections of our life and the city again came back to life.
A must see and do, exciting experience !.

Very fun. Went there for a school field trip and learned a lot about the olden days! They have a new exhibit that is an old house and you can sit on the chairs and touch the stuff which is awesome. The staff is pretty nice. All the boys liked to push the oxen cart. It's nice and clean. Value is pretty good for a museum. It also has a gorgeous view of the capitol building. Please just go and you'll definatley learn something!
We were doing geneology and every thing we went for we found. The almost eight hundred mile trip was well worth it. Don't know too much about the displays as we were too involved with the microfilm and other research. The staff is exceptional!
