The Story Behind This Minnesota Attraction is Terrifying But Amazing

We’ve all been to, or at least heard about this popular museum in Minnesota and its explosive history. And Minnesota would never have grown to be the state it is today if not for the industry that led to the creation of this historical site. The Mill City Museum tells the story of Minnesota and how milling put us on the map, and it’s a place that everyone needs to visit at least once.

Make sure you take time this year to visit Mill City Museum and learn about MN’s history! The museum costs $12 for adults, $10 for seniors, and $6 for kids 5-17. It is free for MNHS members and kids 4 and under. It’s open Tues-Sat from 10 am-5 pm and Sunday from Noon-5pm, although it is also open Mondays in July and August. Visit the Minnesota History Society website for more information and directions.
