The striking Mill City Museum is built amid the ruins of the Washburn A Flour Mill, a National Historic Landmark. Major renovations began in 2001 to bring the 120-year old building into the 21st century. The award-winning architectural design combines relics of the mill's past with modern steel, brick and wood to create a contemporary, industrial space that beautifully preserves the building's historic integrity. Weathered masonry walls frame a delightfully unpretentious 100 x 100 foot outdoor courtyard, with other spaces in the building boasting a similarly industrial feel, allowing room for up to 500 guests. For all its raw authenticity, the Mill City Museum is a modern charmer.

It took my husband and I ages and ages to find venue that combined the feeling of being inside and out, that also didn't cost us an arm and a leg. Mill City was perfect right from the beginning. We met with Amy who would become our wedding consultant. She was a total rock star with helping us with all things wedding related. The day of we didn't have to do anything because everything was taken care of by them. Mill City is a truly beautiful and unique venue and I'd recommend it to anyone.Sent on 07/28/2014

The Mill City Museum is a beautiful place to have your wedding and reception. The courtyard is open-air, framed by the crumbling ruins of an old, burned-out mill, and you can see the Mississippi River from inside the courtyard. It creates a regal and unique setting. The museum staff works well with D'Amico, which is the event planner/caterer who services the museum. I can't say enough about how beautiful this is. (the price range refers to the actual rental price of the space, not the catering price, which is higher)Sent on 09/14/2011
