Entertainment in Minnesota: is as diverse as our population.  Twin Cities entertainment includes the music scene, Minnesota sports teams, festivals in every season, and celebrations of the many cultures represented here.

Vibrant nightlife in Minnesota birthed music legends like Bob Dylan, Prince, The Time, The Replacements, Soul Asylum, Atmosphere, and so many more.

If you are looking for more laid back places to take the family, go out with a date, or gather with friends, Minnesota is nationally applauded for the variety of entertainment venues.
Participate in ethnic festivals and celebrations, attend local fairs, listen to music in the parks. There is always something to enjoy!

Kid Friendly Minnesota Entertainment

Minnesota Zoos include Como Zoo in Saint Paul and the Minnesota Zoo, Lake Superior Zoo,  the Great Lakes Aquarium, and the SeaLife Aquarium. 

Minnesota State Parks are a wonderful place to introduce children to the wonders of the great outdoors. Camping, hiking, boating fishing, and swimming are all wonderful family activities.

The Twin Cities of Minneapolis and Saint Paul is a treasure trove of activities and the arts that kids love. Just a few of the attractions include:

  • Circus Juventas' showcases a youthful circus of high flying acrobatics and dramatic presentations.
  • Heart of the Beast Puppet and Mask Theater will dazzle both children and adults with incredibly gorgeous puppetry and masterful story telling. On Saturdays the children can participate in a "make it and take it" art project. 
  • Minneapolis entertainment at the Minneapolis Institute of Art includes a day just for families on the second Sunday of every month. Children can make their own art and enjoy music and dancing.
  • The Walker Art Center in Minneapolis invites the entire family to explore for free on the first Saturday of every month.

Minnesota Family Fun is an extensive page that can be your guide to family adventure in every season and every region of the state.

Our Travel With Tots page offers lots of ideas for visiting Minnesota attractions with the youngest family members.
