The Storied Life : Boys in the City

StoriedLife-1It is now, perhaps, my favorite part of parenting. The ability to wander. A chance to see the world through new eyes one more time. The ability to slow down and speed up all in one breath. The excitement of an everyday adventure.

Today a walk through the Mill City Museum located on the historic Mississippi Riverfront. Built in the ruins of what was once the world’s largest flour mill you’re welcome to have an interactive experience learning about the history of the flour mill, river and city of Minneapolis. I’m not sure how much we learned on this visit, but we had a blast exploring.

This very reasonably priced pass includes admission for two adults as well as our two (always free) under-five children. That in itself was a pretty good deal before I mention the 25 additional Minnesota Historical Society locations included in this pass! Can’t wait to continue the adventure.
