Christmas Tour @ the Alexander Ramsey House
PLEASE READ THE FULL ANNOUNCEMENT Once again our friends at the Alexander Ramsey House have invited our group to help them preview the Christmas tour and help with the training of the new staff. We have done this for at least three or four years, and our group has enjoyed the tour very much and found the staff well prepared and very happy to have our feedback. If you haven’t joined us at the Ramsey House for this event or any of our other visits, I know you will find it a fun and interesting experience. Here’s how it works, as we tour the house, costumed characters in each of the rooms share personal stories of how the Ramsey’s and Victorians celebrated the holiday season. We’ll hear stories from the families personal journals and letters as well as information discovered by the docents themselves. If climbing stair is a problem I want to let you know that there are three flights of stairs and no elevator. Because the tours haven’t officially started yet, the house won’t be completely decorated, they are offering us a special price of $7.00 per person.(IGNORE THE UNPAID BY YOUR NAME, I DIDN'T PUT IT THERE, IT'S ON EVERY MEETUP PAGE) FYI, MHS memberships do not apply to private tours. We will collect the payment from each person and will make one payment for the group. Please bring cash. The Carriage House where we gather is also the gift shop, they have a really beautiful selection of gifts ranging from everything from jewelry and holiday decorations to books for sale. There are two days scheduled, please sign up for only one date and time and please, please, please, take a minute to update your RSVP if your plans change and keep in mind that they are counting on us to show up if you sign up, so don’t be a no-show. I will need to give them a count, so they can know how many to expect. When you RSVP, please indicate in the comment section what time you would like to tour. We can have up to 15 people per group. The times are 6:30, 7:00 and 7:15. PLEASE PLAN TO ARRIVE AT LEAST 10 MINUTES BEFORE THE TOUR TIME YOU SELECT. Due to the fact that each group is limited to 15 people. I am setting a limit of 1 guest for anyone wishing to bring a guest. Free parking is available in the Ramsey House lot next to the Carriage House, If there is a parking lot attendant collecting fees, just let him know that you are attending an event at the Ramsey House and you will not have to pay. On occasion people try to park there for Wild games or for Forpaughs restaurant across the street. In the past, some people have mistakenly parked in a pay lot down the street, if you’re driving down Exchange, drive past the Ramsey House, take the first right turn, you’ll see the parking lot. Those interested may want to gather at Burger Moes or another local restaurant after our tours. POSTED: 10/30/18

What we're about

We are a group of fun and interesting people who share a common interest in all kinds of creative and visual arts as well as architecture, science and history. We enjoy visiting museums, galleries and historical sites. We like to expand our interest and discover some unexpected places now and then.

Tours are scheduled as often as six to ten times a month and members are welcome to take part in as many as they choose. Most are on week-ends with an occasional event during the week and weekdays.

We give broad meaning to the word museum, besides touring traditional museums, we see plays, go to movies, listen to music and even had food tastings.

We welcome anyone who shares our interests and may be looking for a wonderful group of people to socialize with while taking in the wealth of creativity and history Minnesota has to offer. We are diverse in members and in thought. Join us and see for yourself why so many people call this their favorite Meetup Group.
