As for visiting, the main entrance lobby is worth checking out if you're into architecture. Some remodeling has affected it to a certain extent but I love these older buildings. Mpls has a history of tearing down some excellent stone buildings. As for food, I've never eaten in the cafeteria, which is in the basement passageway over to the government... More

One of the few remaining old buildings in the city. It is surrounded by newer structures and it is fun to take a step back in time.

Great to see from the outside. Limited as to the inside . A sight to see in the daytime. Keep in mind that the Minneapolis jail is located inside so some of the people hanging around the outside, ( mostly at night ) can be a bit sketchy.

Most City Halls can be nondescript but Minneapolis's stands out amongst the new & old buildings with its weathered copper plate roofing reminiscent of Quebec & Ottawa but I suppose they are near neighbours really ? Great use of polished timbers and a beautiful building in Downtown.

You get a sense of the old Minneapolis here. There's something about Minnesota in general that is authentic America. Nothing pretentious, it is what it is. Pure middle America with pride in the USA

A very good example of an old public building. Inside is a warren of offices with.wood trim in abundance. A large beautiful statue of Neptune is in the lobby.

I came here on our last day in Minneapolis. City Hall was a few blocks from our hotel and I only wish I had spent more time exploring this building.

I had to visit the police records department this morning. I entered the building from the 5th Street side and declared to the records clerk what a lovely building it is. Well, she directed me to the rotunda on the 4th street side. Wow. Wow. Wow. Spectacular five story atrium with a glorious statue of the Father of the Waters.... More
