Best Twin Cities Indoor Family Spots

The spring, summer and fall months in Minnesota are made for living life out in the great outdoors (some die-hard snowbirds would argue winter is too). But with Midwest weather you never know what to expect. Sunny and 70 degrees one day … rainy and humid the next. But that doesn’t mean you have to stop the fun and stay cooped up in the house on a rainy day — especially when there are kids involved.

So if you are sick and tired of drizzles and downpours, look no further. We’ve put together what we think are 10 of the best activities in the Twin Cities that can keep your family dry (well, mostly) and entertained on a rain day.

Best Museum Gift Shops

One of my favorite parts of a trip to any museum is exploring the gift shop. Usually stocked with unique goodies that highlight the niche of the museum, it’s kind of like the opposite of a gallery: you can actually touch and take home a piece of the exhibit. Another bonus of most museum gift shops? Free admission (unless you decide to buy something).

Target Field is truly a gem for downtown Minneapolis, especially for families looking for a great day of family fun. While the ballpark may be what lures families to the area, it also makes for a good excuse to check out other all-age activities while you’re in the area.
