James J. Hill House Saint Paul, MN
#6 of 63 Museums in Metro Minneapolis-Saint Paul
I wrongly always thought that the great house museums were concentrated in Europe or the East Coast - the James J Hill house is actually one of my favorite ones that I've seen in recent years.
Rich wood work, magnificent furniture, and rugs, and lamps, etc. Around forty two rooms, but a lot were less fancy servants rooms (but still, how many houses have two story art museums with built in organs in them?).
