The “Twin Cities” may look alike — each split down the middle by the Mighty Mississippi and home to some of the nicest people in the United States — but each has its own claims to fame, characteristics and quirks. On this epic Road Scholar Get-Together, explore these two fascinating cities with likeminded scholars as you delve into art, history, culture and theater. Learn about the diverse heritage of these communities, from their Swedish roots during a private exploration of the Swedish-American Museum to the more recent influence of Somali immigrants. Explore unique museums with top-notch experts, including the historic 1870s Mill City Museum, go backstage at the renowned Guthrie Theater, take in a performance and so much more!
