Join us for our Cabinets of Curiosity Historic Tour at the James J. Hill Center, listed on the National Register of Historic Places and located in historic downtown Saint Paul, across from Rice Park. Take a journey back in time to 1921 and get an inside look at Mr. Hill’s most significant gift to the city, 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 and high-up spaces. This tour travels up stairs and into narrow corridors of the historic building, but it is fully accessible and may be adjusted for your comfort.
Public tours are available for purchase the third Thursday of each month (10:30AM – 11:30AM) and select weekend dates. Tickets available online by visiting our calendar and selecting the date you wish to attend.
