Once of the great outdoor historical attractions in Minneapolis is The Landing.  This attraction is part of the Three Rivers Park District and allows visitors to step back 150 years to see what life was like in the Minnesota River Valley. Costumed volunteers demonstrate how people lived in the authentic farm buildings and other  structures.

If  you aren’t able to make it this Saturday the Landing has living history Saturdays with activities for kids of all ages.
