Limited Capacity seats available

There’s a lot happening in Minneapolis, but some of the really cool museums are across the river in St. Paul. This tour will start with a scenic bus ride across the Mississippi River and along Summit Avenue, St. Paul’s boulevard of historic mansions, ending at the Minnesota History Center [http://www.minnesotahistorycenter.org/]. Here, you’ll get a behind-the-scenes tour of some of the museum’s hands-on and immersive multimedia installations and interactive video conferencing studio, as well as have the opportunity to try your hand at Play the Past [http://www.mnhs.org/playthepast], the History Center’s mobile gaming experience for 4th-6th graders. After lunch at the History Center’s Cafe Minnesota you’ll head down the hill to the Science Museum of Minnesota  [http://www.smm.org/] to experience unique media installations like the Giant Astronaut featuring a video booth where visitors can record themselves and then see their face projected on the helmet of this three story sculpture, as well as a behind-the-scenes tour of the exhibit production shop where the museum builds custom media and electronic installations for clients around the country.
