We love to check out different places around the city. Last year we visited the Bakken Museum in Minneapolis with a group of friends. This museum is in a beautiful historic home, and they offer a super fun way to discover and learn more about the world of science. You’ll learn about Ben Franklin, Frankenstein, electricity, magnetism and more! A favorite room among our crowd was definitely Frankenstein’s Laboratory. It’s a scream…literally. There are lots of hands on exhibits throughout the museum. We visited in September, so walking their outdoor gardens was an enjoyable option. The museum is located right on Lake Calhoun, so be sure to allow time to enjoy the lake area for year round fun and beautiful views of the city across the lake! Of course, in September, we were able to picnic.
The museum is easy to find and they offer free parking. The museum rates are between $0-$7 per person. Plus they offer Free Second Saturday’s from 11-4pm. Check out their website for more information including: hours, prices, location, and exhibits.
