An architectural masterpiece overlooking the Mississippi, Mill City Museum has become a downtown Minneapolis landmark.
The museum, built on the riverfront amid ruins of what once was the world's largest flour mill, is rich in history. Visitors of all ages learn about the history of the flour industry, the river and Minneapolis.
Our engaging field trips include the lesson of your choice (40-50 minutes), a self-guided scavenger hunt, the award-winning Flour Tower show and the "Minneapolis in 19 Minutes Flat" movie starring local storyteller Kevin Kling. Visits last approximately three hours. Groups are welcome to extend their stay by scheduling a 25-minute lunch or by exploring the St. Anthony Falls Historic District.
