Minnesota is home to some truly outstanding museums. The Minneapolis Institute of Art houses nearly 90,000 pieces that span 5,000 years of human history. The Walker Art Center celebrates contemporary art and is home to the famous Minneapolis Sculpture Garden. These two popular spots are just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to Minnesota museums. There are dozens of excellent museums in our state, each celebrating important parts of human history and culture, showing off the wonder of science and nature, and educating generations of Minnesotans on all of the above.
One wonderful museum that more people should know about is the Bell Museum. This natural history museum takes guests back thousands of years, to the era when woolly mammoths roamed the land. If you’re interested in going back in time yourself, continue on to learn about this fascinating place. Then plan a trip for yourself! Here’s what you need to know:
