The sun is shining, the weather is warm, the kids are out of school… why not plan a fun day with your family? Summer is a great time to explore Saint Paul and the Minnesota Children’s Museum! The city offers the perfect start to your weekend, so put on your walking shoes.

1. First stop by The Saint Paul Farmers Market located conveniently in downtown Saint Paul. It’s a great place to take in the local flavors with their selection of 100% locally grown produce, flowers and freshly made foods that will be sure you excite your morning taste buds. Make sure you get there in the morning because it’s only open Sat. and Sun. 6am-1pm.

2. Next, walk four minutes west to Rice Park and enjoy all of your farmers market treats. The park offers a relaxing haven of green space amongst the downtown landscape. Rice Park also highlights several statues from Peanuts’ characters to F. Scott Fitzgerald and The Source by Alonzo Hauser, the popular fountain located in the center of Rice Park. Toss in your penny and make a wish!

3. Last, but never least, stop by the Minnesota Children’s Museum and paint your face at the Spark Cart, play with bubbles in World Works, and discover the summer’s great new exhibits Balancing Act and The Wizard of Oz TM. Or get a bird’s eye view of the city you’ve discovered today up on the Museum’s Rooftop ArtPark!
Summer Hours: Sat-Thurs 9am-5pm, Fri 9am-8pm
