Travels with Children

The adventures I embark upon with my four young children.

Traverse des Sioux Historic Site

Traverse des Sioux Historic Site

1 mile north of St. Peter, MN, on Hwy 169.  507-934-2160.  http://www.mnhs.org/places/sites/tds/index.html
Outdoor site free.  Treaty Site History Center:  $3 adults, $.50 ages 13-18, 12 and under free.  Free parking.  Stroller accessible.  Restrooms available. 

On our journey of Minnesota historic sites, we stopped at the Traverse des Sioux museum in St. Peter.  This is another indoor-outdoor museum, with paths in the prairie grass outdoors and exhibits inside.  Inside the museum, there were a few things that the kids enjoyed looking at, but not a lot to keep their interest.  While some Minnesota historic sites are very hands-on, this one is not, so it’s best suited for when the kids are a little older.
