Have you ever been to the Mill City Museum on the edge of downtown Minneapolis? It's a really interesting place! The museum's website describes the museum as:
"Built into the ruins of what was once the world’s largest flour mill, Mill City Museum is located on the historic Mississippi Riverfront... learn about the intertwined histories of the flour industry, the river, and the city of Minneapolis."
E's fourth-grade class took a field trip to Mill City last week and I was lucky enough to chaperone. It was FASCINATING! I loved everything about it and I am not usually a history fanatic. I can't wait to bring the entire family!
