Mill City Museum - Review

This is a historical Society Museum that was built in 2003 on the ruins of the Washburn ‘A’ Mill. This was a flour mill that was considered as the largest in the world after it was established. It was a symbol of the industrial growth in the city. The museum stresses on the growth of the city, especially flour milling and on the other industries that used to utilize the water power of the St. Anthony Falls.

The whole tour of the museum is a show in which you get to know the history of Minneapolis and the large flour milling industry here. There is everything from a water lab, baking lab and mill machinery.

  • There is a flour tower in the center in which there is a freight cab where you will sit. This will take you on a tour of the different floors of the museum. The floors of this museum resemble exactly that of the flour mill. The additional effects are the voices of the workers who worked in the museum.
  • After this you will be able to exit from the 8th floor where the friendly staff will tell you all about the factory and mill machinery.
  • The 9th floor is the most beautiful. It is a deck from where you can get the perfect view of the St. Anthony Falls.

Mill City Museum, Minneapolis Reviews

  • When you walk up to the building from the river side you see the remnants of the fire that destroyed much of the original mill. When you walk inside you are greeted with the rebirth of the property. The collection is largely old Americana tied to the flour that was milled there. The flour tower is a great interpretative experience for the workers that milled flour there. After the tower you are treated to a great view of the locks and mill district. The museum was worth visiting. Might have to come back to host an event there for a unique venue.

  • I was a bit skeptical when we decided to visit this museum but were very pleasantly surprised. This is a wonderful museum with great docents. Very interesting and entertaining especially the history of the city which is well told in a 19 minute movie. Takes about 1.5 hours to see it all and it will amaze you. The view from the top is fantastic and you can see everything to understand why this city is here. Views of rhe river are spectacular.

  • Fun, learning experience for both kids and adults. If you wanna walk around and read the signs, it’s a very valid option and quite enjoyable. Otherwise, if you want something more interactive, definitely got to the elevator tour they do hourly, worth the wait! I just wish the staff was a little more interactive! But not too much to the point where it’s obnoxious!

  • All that you never knew you wanted to know about flour and flour milling.. The museum space itself is quite small, with essentially one large room containing most of the exhibits. Very good for young kids: two side rooms have something about baking and something involving water games. Funny little movie about the history of Minneapolis (although mostly aimed at locals). The building itself is very nice and the elevator ride up to the terrace with a nice view is fun (elevator has people seated to look at scenes on different floors, and makes its way up and down between these until it reaches the top).

  • Great place to visit for a short evening and you have a lot more in and around to do. The Flower Tower show was enjoyable and informative. End of the ride, you get to view the river 8 stories top and it’s a beautiful spot to take pictures with your family. There is a Bakery that cooks bread in front of you and have samples to taste. There is a 20 minutes movie that gives some history. We entered late after 3pm and they gave half rate as we might not be able do both Flower Tower and the Movie. Staff is very helpful and nice.
