The Mill City Museum offers those who enter an educational tale that weaves Minneapolis' main industry, milling, with the technology that was changing to put Minneapolis as the top milling city in the entire world for some time.
My favorite thing about the museum is that they replicated the giant flour dust explosion that happened, and then they talked about the technology that was implemented to prevent that disaster from happening again.
The museum is operated in the old Washburn A Mill Complex, which has been designated as a National Historic Landmark, and the museum first opened to the public in 2003.

The Mill City Museum is open Thursday through Sunday, you can find the museum's hours and other information by heading to the museum's website.

2. National Underground Railroad Freedom Center - Cincinnati, Ohio

3. Cincinnati History Museum - Cincinnati, Ohio

4. Mississippi Civil Rights Museum - Jackson, Mississippi
