Thank you for your comment - Landmark Center is situated on Rice Park, a lovely "square" that visitors tell us reminds them of a typical European square. More

For legal history buffs this is a fun place to pop in if you have a few minutes in St. Paul. This is an old federal building that was retro fitted to be a community center. Some of the old courtrooms are open. While not set up as courtrooms you can a feel for what they were like in the... More

Throughout this 115 year old building's history, this has always been one of St. Paul's hidden jewels, a true landmark from the perspective of both its architectural exterior to the four interior floors that capture its long history. The main floor, which was used as a federal branch location for the U.S. Post Office for much of its early history,... More

Wow! Thank you, Luke! Your praise for this incredible building is deeply appreciated. It was a wise decision to save this building in the '70s and to re-purpose it for history, arts, culture and life celebrations. We give free public tours (no reservations required) Thursdays at 11am and Sundays at 12noon, which delve into detail about the building's architecture, works... More

My son and daughter in law rented the Landmark Center for their wedding. From start to finish everything went without a hitch. An easy loading dock to use enabled us to bring in everything we needed for the event. They allowed us to use an outside caterer and bar service and that was flawless. We were provided rooms for both... More

Stop at the visitor counter for a map so you can navigate the interesting things housed in this beautiful building. The History Center has a space, there is a music museum, and the old court rooms. If you're luck and go on a Sunday, you might just see a free St. Paul Symphony concert!

We are delighted that you had such a satisfying experience visiting Landmark Center! This historic gem is free and open to the public, and as you pointed out, houses unique, free museums (early music, turned wood art, history gallery, art gallery, and more!), as well as a broad menu of free (or sometimes low cost) cultural programs for the community,...

The Landmark Center was alive with activities for kids during Winter Carnival. We also explored the upper floors and wished some of the museums would have been open to see. It's an interesting history for this building.

The Landmark Center had scheduled children events from 2-6 pm. They had community events around the inside perimeter which included: yarn doll making by the Gibbs Museum, putty making by the Mad Scientist, and making dot constellations.

We attended a wedding reception here. Can't complain about the main facility; it's impressive. Restrooms were a little run-down - there was a drip from the handle in one of the women's which splashed onto the seat. And the toilet paper ran out in several women's stalls. Not acceptable when you have an event with hundreds of people.

Thank you! Your feedback on the restrooms is so important. We agree that they could use updating! As it happens, we have been receiving bids for restroom make-overs, so our restrooms will match the beauty of the rest of the building! Glad you enjoyed your visit, otherwise. More

Loved how the building was restored. The Uncle Sam Worked Here and other historical exibits were informative. The views were beautiful. The small museums inside were fun to explore. We especially enjoyed the Woodturners Gallery and Schubert Club Museum.
