Mill City Museum

After a deadly explosion in 1878, the mill was reopened over a hundred years later to tell the tale of Minneapolis’s connection to flour.

Experience the reincarnation of an industry-leading flour mill into a modern museum. Dedicated to the former glory of the Washburn A Mill, the Mill City Museum explores the past and the present of the National Historic Landmark through art and architecture.
