Group Visits

There are no reserved group visits at our St. Paul location available during 2016 due to our exciting
renovation project. Group visits are planned to resume in the late spring of 2017. We are expanding
our St. Paul museum, re-imagining our galleries and adding wonderful amenities for our visitors.
