The Little White Church in the Valley

Go

retro!

The metro boasts a variety of museums and land-marks that take visitors on a walk down memory lane.

The Pavek Museum of Broadcasting houses one of the world’s finest collections of antique radio, television, and broadcast equipment. The museum has gained international recognition for its continuing efforts in preserving and documenting the history of an industry that has made monumental changes in the fabric of modern life. Roller Garden provides guests a chance to slap on some roller or inline skates and circle the floor with music and laser lights to set the mood. The skating center offers a variety of skate times, lessons and space for parties/special events. The St. Louis Park Historical Society’s collection of historical documents is housed in The Depot in Jorvig Park, at 37th and Brunswick. The Depot, built in 1887, is open to visitors from 1 to 4 p.m. Sundays throughout the summer. The mission of the Golden Valley Historical Society is to discover, preserve and disseminate historical knowledge about the city and to preserve the oldest church in Golden Valley. The “Little White Church In the Valley” was built in 1882 as a nondenominational church. The Golden Valley Historical Society purchased it 1997 to use as a church/museum. It hosts intimate wedding ceremonies for up to 80 guests in a beautiful and classic setting.

Get crafty. We’re home to a craft brewery, Steel Toe Brewing. Steel Toe has a new tap room and offers private event space and tours. Many other breweries throughout the Minneapolis and St. Paul metros also have tap rooms, find out more at mnbeer.com. St. Louis Park is also where you’ll find a fully operational winery, Warehouse Winery. The venue is a great space for special events and offers tours to groups of 10 or more. Find a list of Minnesota wineries at mngrapes.org.
