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.

  • Our eight, nine, and one year old had a marvelous time. The attractions kept them busy for two hours. Lots of physical activity that made this place fun for busy boys. Great play place and super staff...  more »
  • This museum is all about kids! Staff are very helpful and they do a great job of getting the kids engaged in the activities. The ideal age range is probably 4-10. They have a room for younger kids. Pa...  more »
  • We looooooove the children's museum! There is a fantastic variety of entertainment for many ages and skills. My children, 6 and 4, never seem to tire or get bored of the pretend play and water areas. ...  more »

  • Loved the science museum however not a ton of stuff that we found for my two year old to do. There is an awesome mini golf course outside on floor 1 (costs extra!) and my son jumped in one of the rivers so went shoeless the rest of the afternoon. If you plan to go to the Big Backyard exhibit bring a whole extra set of clothes including shoes! Or wear sandals! We will definitely come back!
  • Great place to take kids. My 6-year-old loved it here, especially the dinosaurs and the musical stairs. So did I! We could have spent the whole day here, but it got really crowded and it was tough to get to a lot of the hands-on exhibits. If you can, I'd recommend going on a weekday. Will definitely return.
  • I love science and therefore I adore and love the Science Musem of Minnesota! I honestly wish this place had an age restriction because when people bring their ill mannered children that are all under the age of 5, this place turns into a zoo. Not the museum or the children's fault, but rather the lazy adults that these kids unfortunately have to call their mother and father. Help them and the rest of us Science Museum of Minnesota; let's keep it educational and professional.
  • I absolutely adore the Science museum! So many fun, interactive exhibits. I have spent many hours wandering around. There is something to entertain everyone-and the views are spectacular!
  • Very cool place, great learning experience for children. Tickets were just under $20 for an adult but you can easily spend a couple hours there. The show I wanted to see sold out right as I got to the counter after waiting in a 40 minute ticket line, it was a Saturday afternoon though. I recommend buying tickets online, the $3 convenience fee dissuaded me from doing so on my phone as I was waiting in the line but in retrospect it would've been the right decision.
