St. Paul is home to the governor’s mansion and the State Capitol, but politics is hardly the only show in town.
If museums are your thing, St. Paul offers two unique ones: The Children’s Museum and the Science Museum of Minnesota. The Children’s Museum operates under the unique idea that there would be no “do not touch” signs in the facility’s many visiting and permanent exhibits. Instead, children of all ages are treated to a “fun, hands-on and stimulating environment to explore and discover” when they visit the museum, according to the facility’s website. The Science Museum includes 70,000 square feet of exhibit space, split into a 10,000-square foot temporary exhibit gallery and five permanent galleries dedicated to peleontology, physical science and technology, the human body, people and cultures of the Mississippi River and the museum’s collections.
The city is also home to the Cathedral of St. Paul, whose dome and spires are a distinct part of the city’s skyline. The cathedral’s exterior was completed in 1914, and today the building is the centerpiece of a diocese that covers 12 counties and includes 222 parishes and more than 700,000 Catholics.
Hockey fans will be treated to one of the best venues in the nation if they visit the Xcel Energy Center for a Minnesota Wild game. The arena, known both for its great acoustics and for the fact that there’s not a bad seat in the house, has been home to the NHL franchise since 2000. It is also home to the Minnesota Swarm lacrosse team and the Minnesota Roller Girls roller derby team.
Additionally, some of the top performers in the world have graced the stage at the arena, including the Rolling Stones, Barbra Streisand, Paul McCartney, Pavarotti, Elton John, Billy Joel, Rod Stewart, Lady Gaga, the Police, Tim McGraw & Faith Hill, Kenny Chesney, Neil Diamond, Bruce Springsteen, Bon Jovi, Simon & Garfunkel, and hometown-favorite Prince.
St. Paul is also home to the annual Winter Carnival, a two-week festival that every year includes an impressive display of ice palaces.
The city is served by 22 elementary schools, five junior high and middle schools, and six high schools, as well as numerous magnet and specialty schools.
