This is a must see in St. Paul for the history, the beautiful rooms open for viewing with a shop and food. Wonderful musical instrument museum and wood carving exhibit/sale. It is across the street from Mears Park which is worth a visit as well.

Many well known gangsters have passed through these doors. If you go down stairs there is a small exhibit on the history of the building. The open atrium is beautiful and worth the stop if you are in the area. In December and January there is a small free ice rink just outside the building.

The building is historic and multi-purpose with space for rent for private parties and music events, as well as a historic exhibit area located in a fun section of Lowertown, St. Paul. At the time we were there, the exhibit featured the role/history of Blacks in baseball. The staff was setting up for a wedding reception that was soon to... More

A striking downtown building saved from the wrecking ball, the Landmark Center once served as a federal building, courthouse and main post office. It honors its past while celebrating new fun endeavors. The castle-like structure is distinguished by conical turrets and a Gothic feel. Inside, a courtyard and soaring atrium enable the visitor to see each floor; maybe the idea... More

The Landmark Center used to be a post office. A great place to attend at St. Patrick's Day for Irish dancing, food and Irish goods. During the year, it's a fun place to host large parties. If you are visiting, it's neat to walk the solid marble stairs and the old iron elevator. There is a history of the mobs... More

My wife and I stopped for information about nearby attractions. The staff members at the desk provided detailed and specific information. They were polite and patient. While my wife listened attentively, I took several photos of the building's interior. It was an example of an open lobby that ascended for several stories.

Your trip to St. Paul should originate here. Located in the heart of this historic city next to Rice Park and the historic St. Paul Hotel, the tourism information office located inside is a wealth of information. Don't forget to check out the many mini-museums, as well as the architecture and the exhibits showcasing the former glory of the original... More
