Full description

Enjoy the beautiful city of Minneapolis on a self-guided audio tour. You will receive the instructions on your voucher after booking. Explore the area with an audio guide at your own pace and hear about its culture and history.

Download the app to start your tour along the Mississippi River and cross it on the Stone Arch Bridge. Along the way, you will hear about the history of the milling industry in Minneapolis, the massive mill explosion of 1878, the collapse of the 35W Bridge in 2007, and more.

Soak in the vibrant atmosphere while listening to the history of the town. During the tour, choose to pause the app at any time to take a break or spend some more time seeing the sights.

Learn about the history of Funkytown, an ugly mansion with 86 TVs, and the famous cougar attacks. Discover how long it takes a single drop of water to travel down the Mississippi and how long it takes a person to make the same journey.

Know about the hiring of a hitman in St. Paul and the death of Tiny Tim. Finally, you will end your walk on an island overlooking St. Anthony Falls.

Excellent self guided tour. Although it said it was a 1 hour tour we took over 3 hours to complete as we found so much to see and find out about.
