The milling industry made Minneapolis famous. At Mill City Museum, located in the ruins of what was once the world’s largest flour mill, students learn about the history of industry, the Mississippi, and the city.
Field Trips include one lesson of your choice, a self-guided scavenger hunt in the exhibits, the award-winning Flour Tower multimedia show, access to the 9th floor observation deck with stunning views of the Mississippi River and St. Anthony Falls, and the Minneapolis in 19 Minutes Flat movie.
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.
