Very interesting history of Minny and the Mississippi, St Anthony Falls. Great views. Fun interactive features about how flour was “made” and how consumer use and tastes have changed. View from the “Flour Tower”

We visited this museum on 8/24/17. After we paid our admission charge, we asked about lockers for our travel bag and the ticket agent directed us to lockers around the corner from his post. We paid a quarter and locked up our Sportsac travel bag,...More
