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. Inside the perimeter they had a jumper and YMCA physical education activities. The Mad Scientist did an excellent demonstration at 5:00. It would... More

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.

Built in 1902, we learned at the welcome desk this building was nearly demolished. It went through some tough times and transactions. At one point everything in this building was painted Government Green. A must visit if you are interested in architecture and a glimpse of the past.

This is a beautiful building with a lot of history. There is so much to see here, we spent several hours. There is a Gallery of Wood Art, the Schubert Club (impressive collection of musical instruments), numerous display explaining the history of building - the FBI was housed here, several courtrooms, and much more. Definitely worth taking the time to... More

We walked from the basement to the fourth floor. The architecture is wonderful and it is a blessing that this building was not destroyed.

I took my father and son there as we spent a day walking around downtown St Paul. The building is beautiful and full of lots of interesting things, museum like. I believe they also do weddings or wedding receptions there as well. A place to check out. It's free and you just might see some cool unique things too.
