Science Museum Of Minnesota
The peak of Minnesota’s tornado season may have passed for 2012, but opening this weekend at the Science Museum of Minnesota is Tornado Alley.
Five priceless museum exhibits open in Minnesota this fall. Make a trip to see them all.
When school is out, playdates and the need for finding educational and entertaining activities to keep little hands and minds busy become even more necessary. These awesome area playdates are inexpensive, allow plenty of space for running and playing, and offer little educational snippets kids can enjoy all summer long.
Summer is typically a very busy time for most people between weddings and getting up to the lake. But giving blood isn’t typically high on the priority list, so Memorial Blood Centers wants to change that.
Memorial Blood Centers and the Science Museum of Minnesota are teaming up on Friday, July 13 for a special blood drive event!
Five of the best miniature golf courses across Minnesota for inexpensive family fun.
History comes alive at the Science Museum of Minnesota’s new exhibit, Real Pirates, and some local actors are a big reason why.

It’s the only rotating dome screen in the world, and it’s right here in the Twin Cities.
The flu can be serious, even deadly and it spreads easily, but this year, many are wondering, where is it?
Yesterday we told you about 7-year-old Moira Stomberg from Minneapolis. Someone stole her wheelchair from her family’s north Minneapolis driveway over the weekend. Now she’ll be getting a brand new wheelchair because of a WCCO-TV viewer.
Even though the current Science Museum of Minnesota appears to be staying at this location for a while with our old favorites — the mummy is always a must-see — many exhibits continue to move in and out rather frequently.
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.
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).
