Where to Eat

Inside the museum

We ask that all food and beverages be enjoyed on level 6 or in the lobby. There are tables, chairs, and free water to enjoy.

Outside the museum

If the weather is nice, bring a blanket and sit outside. The views of downtown St. Paul and the Mississippi River are beautiful.
