Day of Discovery
Art, history, science, and more are all at your fingertips. Saint Paul is home to museums of many interests—and many provide affordable (and free!) admission to explore. Located in downtown Saint Paul, the Minnesota Museum of American Art is the oldest art museum in Minnesota. Right now, you can take a tour of the museum’s exterior exhibitions in windows and skyways surrounding the Pioneer Endicott building—with the interior galleries set to open in fall 2023.
For history buffs, stop by the Minnesota History Center to browse exhibits, see live programs and performances, and explore the state’s vast history. With easy accessibility, affordable admission, and a welcoming atmosphere for people of all ages and interests, the History Center is the perfect place to bring the family for a day of discovery.
At the University of Minnesota Saint Paul, the Bell Museum displays Minnesota wildlife, native plants, and solar exhibits. Check out the digital planetarium, high-tech exhibits, outdoor learning experiences, and more to get an inside look at the life systems throughout the state.
