Take a guided walking tour of the Minneapolis riverfront and learn about its dramatic past and bright future.

Visit the historic district at St. Anthony Falls, once the milling center of the world and now a growing cultural, recreational, and residential neighborhood. Stop along the Stone Arch Bridge for spectacular views of the falls, view historic buildings surrounding the riverfront and downtown Minneapolis, and learn about the many people who have worked and lived in the area over the years. 

Tour highlights include the Stone Arch Bridge, a National Historic Landmark, and St. Anthony Falls, the only significant waterfall on the Mississippi River. 

The tour will begin and end at Mill City Museum, and includes about 1 mile of moderately paced walking on uneven surfaces. Please call ahead for questions about accessibility.

The tour will take place rain or shine. Please note, our interior museum gallery is temporarily closed.

This program is part of "What makes Minneapolis, Minneapolis?" a new outdoor series that examines the historical and contemporary identity of the city.

This program is supported in part by the Bill and Kay McReavy and Family Fund.
