Minnesota Children's Museum

Designed for children four months to 10 years old, this museum features four permanent galleries and two others hosting traveling exhibits. Visitors are encouraged to use all of their senses to explore the many things there are to see and do. They can be in the spotlight on the sound stage, crawl through the maze of tunnels in the giant ant hill, create a thunderstorm, operate a huge crane and much more. Activities and performances by singers, dancers, jugglers and storytellers take place daily. This is truly a place where 'learn to play, play to learn' is more than just a phrase. There is free entry on every 3rd Sunday of the month.

The Bakken Museum

This museum and library is the first of its kind in the world. Located inside a historic mansion, The Bakken is a fun place to learn about the history of electricity and electromagnetism to its present use and form. It is home to a massive collection of articles, journals and scientific instruments related to this field. Many of the permanent exhibits are interactive; experience a jolt from a century-old electric machine or perhaps a visit to the Frankenstein's Laboratory will make your day. Other interesting spaces here are Ben Frankin's parlor and the library's luscious gardens. The Bakken makes for a great day out with family.

Science Museum of Minnesota

Built into the bluffs on the Mississippi River, this 370,000-square-foot museum features a hall of human biology and a large screen, 415-seat theater that supplements the museum's exhibits of dinosaurs and fossils. Rotating exhibits on everything from holograms to the human heart keep the crowds returning. The William McKnight-3M Omnitheater screens a varying selection of films. The state's longest reptile, a 40-foot steel iguana, guards the main entrance.

Gibbs Museum of Pioneer & Dakotah Life

The Gibbs Museum of Pioneer and Dakotah Life compares the lives of Minnesota Pioneers with those of the Dakotah Indians who lived in the region. Costumed interpreters give tours of the site, which includes a 19th Century farm house, a unique one-room school house, barns, farm animals, a replica sod house, Dakotah tipi and artifacts, bark lodge, pioneer and Dakotah gardens, and more.

Twin City Model Railroad Museum

For all those model railroad buffs out there, the Twin City Model Railroad Museum is the place to go. Miniature replicas of the American trains of the '30s, '40s, and '50s, perfect down to the last detail, chug along the tiny tracks and stations, to the delight of both young and old alike. Tour groups are also welcome.

Minnesota Streetcar Museum

Travel back in history at the Minnesota Streetcar Museum. This attraction preserves the history of the electric railway in the region with two functioning railway lines and a number of restored and operating streetcars. The rail lines provide the ultimate streetcar experience, but the museum is a hub of history and education, with historical artifacts to remember the past.
