Landmark Center, Saint Paul

4.4
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.

    The history of this building is spectacular! Went there for a wedding reception, 200+ attendees. Easily seated in the atrium of the building. He high ceilings made the PA sound system a bit hard to he...  more »

    I grew up in St. Paul. I worked downtown, and would wander around in here during lunch. I even honed my photography skills here, being allowed to use the place after hours for shoots. I have probably ...  more »

    We had my daughters wedding at Landmark Center about a month ago. It was amazing and we couldn't have been happier. We had some unfortunate circumstances with a different venue and had to find a new venue last minute. We were so fortunate that Landmark Center had a last minute cancellation that fell on the same day we had planned her wedding. It was that day that we talked with Betsy and learned that we could have Landmark as our new venue that our luck changed. Everything after that point went smoothly. Betsy was so sweet and truly cared about out wedding. She was easy to work with and truly cared about making sure that my daughters wedding went as smoothly as possible. We cant say enough good things about Betsy. She was so accommodating and patient with us and last minute changes were not a problem. The follow through with the details that we discussed was perfect. On top of all of that the cost was very reasonable compared to other venues that we had considered. The building was beyond beautiful without a lot of decorations. The building was so beautiful, spacious and clean and the staff were amazing. The wedding day was so perfect in every way. We would highly recommend this venue and staff for anyone considering a beautiful wedding that meets every expectation that you could have. Thank you so much.

    Absolutely beautiful building inside and out. Worth a walk through, and well done with the explanation of historic events and people who have passed through its doors.

    This is a beautiful building with very interesting exhibits. I definitely recommend looking into a schedule, so you can make sure exhibits are open. They have very particular hours for some of them. And yes it is free!

    Beautiful building with lots to see. Try to catch it when they host free symphony concerts. It's just gorgeous.

Where to stay in Saint Paul

Places to stay in St. Paul sit concentrated in the downtown area. The Lowertown Historic District, which includes some of the city's oldest buildings, makes a particularly attractive option. Hotels, guesthouses, and bed and breakfasts here can put you just steps from the Mississippi River, while the greater downtown area also offers apartment rentals and hostels. Staying downtown also puts you within walking distance of most of the city's prime attractions. Additionally, you'll find a handful of national-chain hotels on the east side of town near Interstate 494 / 694.
