Landmark Center, Saint Paul

(4.4/5 based on 110+ reviews on the web)
Landmark Center was built in 1902 and originally served as the Federal Court House and Post office for the Upper Midwest. In the 1970s, a group of determined citizens saved the building from the wrecking ball and restored it to its previous grandeur. It was on the National Register of Historic Places and reopened to the public as Landmark Center in 1978. Today, Landmark Center serves as a cultural center for music, dance, theater, exhibitions, public forums, and hosts countless special events.

Owned by Ramsey County, Landmark Center is managed by Minnesota Landmarks, a not-for-profit organization. Landmark Center also houses Anita's Cafe, Landmarket Gift Shop, five gallery spaces, and a number of St. Paul's premier arts and culture organizations.

  • This is a great place for events!! I had prom here which was very very cool. The acoustics are not great, but the locations is so great. Beautiful interior. There are courtrooms you can visit and also a reference library in the basement. They always have events going on. Very nice.
  • easily one of the best looking buildings in St paul. so impressed with this place. definitely worth a stop. parking really isnt that awful either if you can parallel park okay
  • Beautiful and functional old building. They have made it useful but have retained the charm and history. I recommend the wood turning and musical instrument museums
  • Great historic building that used to hold offices, but now is used for historic events. If you're downtown and want to see an interesting space, stop in and look around. You'll enjoy it.
  • Neat architecture, reminds me of an old castle in Europe. Nice free exhibits too.
