Location Description:

Marvelous discoveries about the world we live in await inside the Minnesota History Center. Located on the edge of downtown St. Paul, exhibits include a living history of a St. Paul house, where we can learn about the families that have lived there since it was first built, including many immigrants building futures for their families. There are also massive collections of photos and documents tracing the history of our state. The center offers a selection of youth groups and outreach programs with an aim in historical education for children, while venue rentals of beautiful on-site ballrooms are available for higher rates.
