After our visit to the American Swedish Institute, we had a couple of hours before supper time, but not enough time to go across to town to the Children’s Museum as the kids requested. Mill City Museum, however, was only a few minutes away. Since we have a membership to the Minnesota Historical Society, the stop cost us only $1.50 for the parking meter. One of our children protested the stop until we reminded him of the water area. After that, he was the first one unbuckled and out of the car.
We’ve been to Mill City before. It’s an interesting place for adults, but there’s plenty of hands-on activities for the kids as well. We didn’t go on the Flour Tower segment this time, but we did get to taste some cookies in the baking lab.
We stayed almost until closing time, and the kids had fun all the while.
