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 was once the world's largest flour mill, is rich in history. Students learn about the history of the flour industry, the river and Minneapolis.
Our engaging field trips include the lesson of your choice, a self-guided scavenger hunt, the award-winning Flour Tower show and the "Minneapolis in 19 Minutes Flat" movie starring local storyteller Kevin Kling.
All programs support state of Minnesota academic standards in social studies.
Introduce your students to Forests, Fields and the Falls, an exciting online graphic novel that explores Minnesota's early industries of milling, logging, and farming.
