  • We had a great time here yesterday! We did a scavenger hunt and even got prizes. We spent two hours exploring code and stagecoaches and gold. What an awesome place, and free! My 10 year old and I had ...  more »

  • Fun place to vise if you want to see some old school banking from the horse and carriage Era. This place has tons of history about Wells Fargo and the bank in general. If you are wondering around downtown this is a must see place!
  • That was a fun, spur-of-the-moment visit. Walk by it every day, over lunch today I stopped in. Loads of history, fun relics...their phones and telegraph systems are wired up and work...the lady at the desk was fun to chat with for a bit. I will stop in again on a lunch hour when Ihave more time...there was more to read and learn.
  • I've brought my son here a couple times, it's a nice little museum. I'd drop it to 4 stars for only being open M-F (which makes it hard to take my kids there) but those are normal finance hours. They pack a nice amount of stuff into a small space, and it does a good job of even keeping my 6 year old interested. For a museum that doesn't cost anything to visit, I can't really complain. It's even on the skyway level for extra easy in-and-out.
  • A very informative history of banking in the Northwest. Zack is a very knowledgeable guide in this worthwhile museum.
  • Nice little historic piece about the history of Wells Fargo and the stagecoaches. There's some information about the original building that burned and about the old Norwest Center where the present day Wells Fargo Center stands. The full size stagecoach on the ground level is awesome.

Where to stay in Minneapolis

To stay in the thick of tourist action, choose a hotel in downtown Minneapolis. This area offers many independent and chain hotels, with rooms that range from budget-friendly to high-end. You can also stay close to the area by exploring mid-range hotels just a few blocks from downtown that are set in quieter neighborhoods with fewer tourists. If you have access to a car and don't mind driving to most major attractions, you can consider a good value motel or inn just outside the city.
