I'm not a huge fan of museums but this one was actually super interesting. Would probably be great for families and but also just walking around by yourself.

Tower tour was interesting and the view from the top was awesome. Took three hours to see everything while taking our time. The Minneapolis movie was great and they even had an experiment showing a small scale mill explosion
