This with the stone arch bridge is spectacular

A must see, and a great time to stroll along the river. Great park attached, and a walk across the bridge is a must do.

The falls were important when Minneapolis was the four milling capital of America, now it is just a history lesson of the Mississippi river. The views from Stone Arch Bridge, and the history of that bridge are more exciting. Lovers like to stroll this bridge even late at night... a safe getaway and place to view downtown Minneapolis.

I went to see the fall after I visited the Mill City Museum. The fall is bigger than I thought. This is my first time seeing such kind of fall, which is completely rebuilt by human (although the fall was originally a natural fall).

While in town visiting relatives. They took us here to see the falls and read about the history of the flour mills that were powered by the river. Nice walking trail and they have a few posters on the bridge explaining the history and the importance of the flour mills and the water power (falls) for the city during that... More

We walked across the bridge, the water was really flowing that day, it is quite a fantastic view. We attended a matinee play at the Guthrie along the falls, close to the Mill City Museum, too. It is a nice day visit.

My wife and I were in Minneapolis visiting friends and stopped by the Falls and walked around the circuit loop. It was a very pleasant walk that crossed two bridges across the river giving us nice views from both sides.

The falls are what made Minneapolis famous powering all the mills. Nice scenic time to be had with a quaint walk around the area.

Looks like an interesting place to walk. Small waterfalls located very close to downtown. Nice walk between downtown and NE section of Minneapolis.

We visited here on a very warm July afternoon. Finding where to go in was a little frustrating and we found ourselves lost and walking in the sun and heat over a bridge and then back again. Signage could have been better. The exhibit itself is informative and shows the history of the use of the Mississippi in the area.... More

We enjoyed walking and seeing. It was a neat experience for the whole family. It was a nice walk. Take sunscreen for this.
