Mill City Museum in Minneapolis will reopen Nov. 4

Mill City Museum in Minneapolis, which has been closed since the COVID-19 shutdown in March 2020, will reopen on Nov. 4.

The Minnesota Historical Society said Wednesday that signature exhibits such as Water Lab, Baking Lab and the Observation Deck will be open, with museum guides stationed throughout the museum. The Flour Tower will be operating with reduced capacity. Snacks, sandwiches and salads will be available at Bushel & Peck.

The gallery’s overview of Minneapolis history is being updated this fall and will be renamed “What Makes Minneapolis, Minneapolis?” Exhibits include “Homeless in the Mill,” a small exhibit of photographs and words by JobyLynn Sassily-James, who took shelter in the abandoned Washburn A Mill Complex from 1994 to 1995.

Mill City Museum is located at 704 S. Second St., Minneapolis. Masks are required while visitors are inside. Tickets are $8-$12. For info:
