After spending some time at the zoo, we decided to visit Mill City Museum. This museum is found along the Mississippi River in Minneapolis. It is the old Wasburn Crosby A-Mill (later to become General Mills). It is known as “The most explosive museum in the world."
This nickname comes from several sources: the 1878 explosion that leveled the original Wasburn Crosby A-Mill (on the same site as the current building), and the “Flour Tower” ride, which allows guests to experience the explosion firsthand and live to tell about it. We exited the “Flour Tower” on the top story (8th story I think) of the building, and were treated to stunning views of the river from the rooftop observation deck, and a fun ride back down in a glass elevator. I am glad we took the time to revisit this museum and learn something new about our history.
You have to buy tickets early (probably because of the break, regular weeks are probably not as busy), but it is well worth it. As I have said before, it is impossible to not have fun on a trampoline and this place is packed with them!
