Last week I visited the Mill City Museum for the first time. Overall, I’d give this museum a B-. Let’s start with the pros. This museum is absolutely gorgeous and has stunning views of the Mississippi River and the Stone Arch Bridge. I enjoyed the stories of squatters living in the abandoned mill and The “Flour Tower” elevator exhibit that goes up to the observation deck. The rest of the museum, however, is a snore. A museum about flour just isn’t that interesting to me (although my husband was pretty fascinated). Sure the history of flour is the history of Minneapolis but weren’t terribly interesting. I don’t think old cereal boxes and Pillsbury Dough Boy salt and pepper shakers from only a few decades ago are that interesting but maybe that’s because my last two trips were to London and Egypt. About 33% of the exhibits are also kid focused so the museum seemed quite small to me. I paid $5 admission during Mill City Live and for the music combo and museum I thought that was a good deal but the regular admission price is $10 for an adult. Overall my advice is to visit this museum but wait for a discount ticket offering.
