Science Museum Of Minnesota
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).
We’ve all done it and let’s be honest, it’s going to happen again. Here’s a guide on how to make the most of your unexpected day off. Here are some of the best [guilt-free] places, in no particular order.
The Science Museum is making efforts to prove it’s not just for kids. And for those adults who haven’t visited since they were kids, it’ll be a nice trip down memory lane — but this time with cash bars.
Long gone are the days of thinking of museums only as stuffy places made for art snobs and class field trips. In Minnesota, we have an abundance of museums and they are all so different. That’s why we put together a list of 10 museums you need to check out on the state.
For the first time ever, artifacts from King Tut’s tomb are going on display in Minnesota.
