We took my niece and her two young sons to this museum last fall and they loved it. It is right on the Mississippi River, where the flour mills (Pillsbury, General Mills, etc) were originally built for river transport. Minneapolis (City of Waters) became famous...More

This museum is definitely worth the entrance fee and the views of the river are gorgeous. You'll get to hear from real mill workers and maybe even see a flour dust explosion 💥! After you visit, exit through the back and walk along the river.

This museum is very interesting and has lots of stuff to look at. I have always been fascinated by Minneapolis History.

A dear friend recommended we visit, and we're very, very glad she did. It's right alongside the Mississippi River, on the site of what had been a huge flour mill, back in the day--but it turns out flour dust can explode, big-time, so they had...More

MCM is a lesser known museum in the Twincities. However, it is as good as the others. It is a great place to visit if you have small kids. Interactive exhibits are wonderful and a great learning experience.

We were curious to know why a big part of the local economy had fallen and found that the flour mills along the Mississippi were moved further in-State after the mills exploded.

Interesting history and a fantastic job of rehabbing the original building. The museum itself is very small. The "Flour Tower" is probably the best part of the museum. I would rate this between "Average" and "Very Good" if I could. The gentleman giving us the...More

Take a fascinating trip in time to see how Minneapolis became the mill city. It's worth returning a time or two to catch it all.

This is a surprising gem - surprising to me at least. I expected it to be a cool place to visit but was really impressed with the experiential nature of it all. Especially good for elementary aged kids to learn and explore.

Minneapolis is nicknamed "Mill City" because it was home to flour mills along the Mississippi River in what is now, downtown Minneapolis. There is so much to see in this museum! There is a really well done short movie by the extraordinary storyteller, Kevin Kling,...More

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.

Parking may be a challenge on the 4th, but the city has a ramp directly across the street with 324 spaces. We have used it recently when the on-street parking was blocked by construction. There is no attendant so you need to... More
