There was also a musical instrument museum in the same building which had some very interesting old phonographs and other things.
St. Paul is a lovely old city overlooking the Mississippi River. It had been a railroad town and has a wonderful model train museum. I am not usually into this type of museum but this one was close to our motel so we decided to take a quick look. But we really enjoyed it....done exactly to scale of the twin cities in the period around 1950's.
We ate at the famous Mickey's diner in downtown St. Paul....a very fun place because of the history and pretty good food to boot!
Then we drove to Munising, Michigan where we spent a couple of nights. The town is located right on the Upper Michigan peninsula on Lake Superior.....surrounded by many water falls and the "home base" of the Painted Rocks Park.
