On our journey of Minnesota historic sites, we stopped at the Traverse des Sioux museum in St. Peter. This is another indoor-outdoor museum, with paths in the prairie grass outdoors and exhibits inside. Inside the museum, there were a few things that the kids enjoyed looking at, but not a lot to keep their interest. While some Minnesota historic sites are very hands-on, this one is not, so it’s best suited for when the kids are a little older.
