“Great for a history buff”

History Center of Olmsted County
Ranked #19 of 52 things to do in Rochester
Attraction details
Reviewed 23 December 2011

Rochester has an interesting history. The clinic was founded here after a devestating tornado. This is one of the many things you can learn at the history center. I found the exhibit on historical medical treatments to be interesting, not sure if this was a permenent or temporary exhibit. Worth a stop on the way to Mayowood if you enjoy history.

They have a local group of people that provide a living example of baseball at the turn of the century…that’s 1885. Totally entertaining! You can tell the players (actors) are having a blast, too. The umpire is hilarious was he narrates throughout the game.

The museum has a variety of exhibits on the history of the county; including the big 1883 tornado, the Mayo Clinic, St. Mary's Hospital and hands on exhibits for children. There are also many programs both on and off site. The grounds include a 1800’s log cabin, country school, two farms and other displays that are open during the summer months. Also has a gift store.

There is something interesting for everyone.

Location in southwest part of town is a little out of the way, but definitely worth the trip.
