Location of the Mississippi River Museum

The Minnesota Science Museum in Saint Paul is the most visited museum in Minnesota. It is also the location of a Mississippi River museum and Mississippi River Visitor Center.

Minnesota Science Museum

The Science Museum of Minnesota features an amazing wealth of interactive exhibits. When our kids were young, and we lived in northern Minnesota, a family pass to the Science Museum was always in our budget for the year. It is still one of the Twin Cities' best bargains.

Several exhibits that our kids loved are still favorites at the museum:

The Egyptian Mummy that was given to the Science Museum in 1925

The Dinosaur Exhibit

The collection of Questionable Medical Devices once that claimed to cure chronic diseases and disorders.

Some of the interactive exhibits allow you to create a tornado, experiment with cells, and play on the musical staircase.

Don't miss the Collections Gallery where you can explore other cultures including a traditional Hmong house. 

The museum includes permanent collections, rotating exhibits and traveling exhibits. You will see some of the world's ancient treasures and exhibits that highlight present science and technology. Recent installations have included:

  • Dead Sea Scrolls
  • King Tut Exhibit

Seeing the films in the IMAX Theater was always the biggest draw for our family. We scheduled our visits to "the Cities" to coincide with the latest film coming to our favorite Minnesota science museum.

Now that our family is grown, we find ourselves living in East St. Paul and almost within walking distance of the Science Museum of Minnesota. And we still love it. It is now our joy to introduce our grandchildren to the wonders of science in this very special place.

Another unique part of the Science Museum of Minnesota is the Mississippi River Museum. Learn about the great river and participate in events that celebrate this might river that is born in Minnesota.
