Minnesota’s official natural history museum and planetarium is now located on the University of Minnesota Twin Cities campus in Saint Paul. Take amazing journeys from the far reaches of the cosmos to deep inside the human brain in the Whitney and Elizabeth MacMillan Planetarium. Explore the origins of the universe, the diversity of life on earth, and take a walk through the state of Minnesota, featuring our world famous wildlife dioramas.
Engage all your senses in our Touch & See Lab with 10,000-year-old fossils, living plants and animals, and more. Wander outside on our green roof and observation deck, and explore the learning landscape of native plants, geology gardens, and solar station.
