Minnesota's Greatest Generation

Step into the lives of Minnesota’s Greatest Generation in this 6,000-square-foot exhibit. True stories from this amazing group of people will take you through each era and leave you inspired.Members of Minnesota’s Greatest Generation are people we know, they are our grandparents, our parents and our next-door neighbors. Yet, we may have never heard their stories. These remarkable people – who grew up during the Depression, came of age during World War II and participated in the post-war boom – created a lasting legacy that has shaped all of us who have come after. Highlights:

  • View classic film clips in a 1930s-style movie theater
  • Get behind the counter of a 1930s soda fountain
  • Watch a recreation of a World War II combat flight in a C-47 plane
  • Join a “Rosie the Riveter” style assembly line packing ammunition shells
  • See an M-8 armored vehicle and a 1955 Ford sedan, both produced at the St. Paul Ford plant
