Science Museum of Minnesota

For over a century, The Science Museum of Minnesota has served the community and provided a face to face experience with science and natural history. Built on the banks of the Mississippi River, the museum covers a massive 370,000 square feet area. The museum is an officially recognized non-profit organization. Additionally, guests can explore a seemingly endless selection of both permanent and temporary exhibits.

Permanent exhibits include an in-depth history of the Mississippi river, a look at Native American life through the ages, and a unique tour of the human body. The body tour includes a cell lab and a real mummified mummy. However, the museums most treasured exhibit is dinosaurs and fossils. Further, the Science Museum of Minnesota is home to one of only four Triceratops skeletons in the world, and it’s the largest on display to the general public.
