Historic Tour

Cabinets of Curiosity 

Join us for our Cabinets of Curiosity Tour at the James J. Hill Center, listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Take a journey back in time to 1921 and get an inside look at Mr. Hill’s most significant gift to the city of Saint Paul hailed by modern critics as “a high point in Beaux Arts architecture in Minnesota!” Learn the stories, mysteries and intrigue behind the stone walls of the historic reference library and explore secret spots, glass catwalks, hidden vaults and high up spaces.

This tour travels upstairs and into the nooks and crannies of the historic building, but it is fully accessible and may be adjusted for your comfort.

IMPORTANT NOTICE:

We are pleased to announce the completion of our elevator renovation at the James J. Hill Center. This project was financed in part with funds provided by the Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund through the Minnesota Historical Society and the F. R. Bigelow Foundation. It will greatly increase our ability to serve patrons with accessibility needs.

Please access our ground floor elevator entrance via Kellogg Ave at the back of the building. Please ring the doorbell on the right hand side of door and a Hill staff member will assist you. If you have questions or concerns please call 651.265.5500. We look forward to having you visit our brand new elevator!
