The place has been renovated and is in pristine condition. Inside is spectacular. Great marble. We stopped in for a minute and stayed a couple of hours.

I didn't see the entire building but did visit several floors and open areas. It's mainly an old office building but the "bones" seem solid and the architecture inside and out make it wort stopping by.

A must "go see" stainless glass, tile artworks, & the grand marble staircase. The clock chimes daily at lunch & at holiday's. The Minneapolis City Hall is also called the Hennepin County Courthouse, & more formally Municipal Building Commission. It is listed on the National...More

Well worth taking a tour through this beautiful old building with interesting architecture. In the atrium you'll see a grand marble staircase, breathtaking stained glass ceiling and windows, majestic statue - Mississippi, the Father of Waters, and intricately carved marble faces (no two alike) that...More

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...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...More

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...More
