This museum really captures the importance of the milling industry in the development of Minneapolis. The partial restoration allows visitors to see how the wheat was milled and packaged as well as the transportation of the flour. It is a very engaging tour.

Hello, my daughter and I are going to the museum for the Fourth of July (museum & fireworks), so we'll be there all day and most of the night. What is the best place to park as far as safety, price, etc. She's 10 and I don't want to be wandering the streets to get back to my car too late.
