  • Very informative and excellent history lesson for all ages. Our family of 4, our daughter age 9 1/2 & our son age 12 enjoyed it! Gifts and books about the fire and other books about Minnesota sold here.
  • The Hinckley fire museum is an interesting tour. Really, you must take the tour. That was a nasty fire. Very small fee...and you learn some hard to imagine facts about the deadly fire.
  • Take in the movie, it really tells the story well. It's a small museum, but worth the stop.
  • Short your with a video about the fire. Several rooms outfitted with old stuff to simulate the olden days. Pretty nifty. Small fee.
  • Very informative. I cannot imagine a fire this large. Definitely worth the stop.
