BECAUSE I AM REQUIRED TO HAVE FULL PAYMENT INTO THE MUSEUM TWO WEEKS IN ADVANCE I AM ASKING THAT YOU PAY WHEN YOU RSVP. The cost of this tour is $14.00, PLEASE LET ME KNOW IF YOU NEED MY ADDRESS TO SEND A PERSONAL CHECK. ALL CHECKS MUST BE RECEIVED BY APRIL 21ST. CASH IS ALWAYS WELCOMED. Museum admission is included. Unfortunately, because this is a private guided group tour MHS member discounts do not apply. THE TOURS GO RAIN OR SHINE. I have a limit of 30 people.
I'm always surprised at the number of people that haven't been to the Mill City Museum. It's truly a unique place, not only because the museum itself was once part of a historic flour mill, but because it really is a pretty neat place. It's been a while since we've been there and I am happy to introduce people to this museum and welcome back those that have been there before. THESE TOURS WILL START ON TIME, PLEASE PLAN TO BE THERE NO LATER THEN 12:45. IF YOU WISH TO HAVE LUNCH OR A SNACK AT THE CAFE, PLAN TO ARRIVE BY 12:30.
We will be spending most of the afternoon learning about the history of the riverfront and the milling district. We will begin our day with an hour and a half walking tour, I've done this tour before and found it really interesting. Since each docent puts together their own tour, it's a new tour each time, so plan to learn something new this time. Our time at the museum does not involve a lot of walking and will have plenty of time to sit and enjoy two very good presentations. There is an awesome observation deck that overlooks the riverfront. You will definitely want to bring your camera.

Parking is available on the street, but if you are worried about time I suggest parking in the ramp across the street from the museum.
