Mill City Museum

Built into the ruins of what was once the world's busiest flour mill, this museum traces the intertwined histories of flour, the Mississippi River and the city of Minneapolis in a surprisingly fascinating way. Highlights include a six-foot-tall box of Bisquick, a baking lab that dispenses pancake and cookie samples, and the Flour Tower, an eight-story elevator ride and multimedia show that includes bird's-eye views of the original limestone ruins. Regular events and demonstrations like "Scratch vs. Mix Brownies" help keep you here for an entire afternoon.
