smARTpass Program – Check Out FREE Tickets to Shows and Exhibits!

MELSA smARTpass Program is an arts access program for Twin Cities metro public library users. The MELSA Libraries (Anoka County, Carver County, Dakota County, Hennepin County, Ramsey County, Saint Paul, Scott County, Washington County), offer patrons this option for free or reduced-price tickets to arts activities and museums. Like the Museum Adventure Pass that went before it, this program is not guaranteed to be around forever. We recommend taking advantage of it but also thanking the venues for their support. It would be sad to lose this resource.

There is a firefighters hall of flame in Phoenix Arizona.  This is not the same place.

This museum is best know for its Birthday parties, but it also is a fabulous place to learn about History and there is a special section on the I35W Bridge Collapse. Kids will love the Interactive Play Area although it is a very Small space.

Check out their new Halloween Event.

This museum is among my favorite Twin Cities Museums and Historic Places and is located in beautful NE Minneapolis.

Franconia Sculpture Park, Taylor’s Falls

Located about an hour’s drive from the Twin Cities, the funky Franconia Sculpture Park park has often been a stop for our family en route to Taylors Falls and the beautiful St. Croix River Valley.

Franconia Sculpture Park

What can you do at Franconia Sculpture Park?

Make sure not to miss exploring the dozens of intriguing sculptures that dot the 20-acre space, each crafted by a current or previous resident artist of the Franconia community. These inspired sculptures are truly the heart of the park. Plus, it’s art you can touch! And in some cases, run through, climb over, and swing on! In short, it’s art that’s extra kid-pleasing.

It’s possible, and always free, to tour at your leisure. Spend as little or as long as you’d like interacting with the art. For those who’d like a little more formal introduction, artists and staff lead free guided tours each Sunday at 2pm from May-October. There are also options to go more in depth for a small fee per person. Please note that the exhibits are continually changing as artists complete their residencies.

A number of special events are hosted throughout the year at Franconia Sculpture Park.

  • Valentine’s Hot Metal Pour, February
  • Music at Franconia, June-August, one Saturday/month
  • Art & Artists Celebration, September
