Take a free tour of historic City Hall
Did you know the Father of Waters statue in the City Hall Rotunda weighs more than 14,000 pounds and was sculpted from the largest marble block in Italy’s famed Carrara quarries? Or that City Hall’s clock tower faces are some of the largest in the world at 23 feet 6 inches in diameter? They’re even larger than the clock faces connected to London’s Big Ben.
Get to know the historic Minneapolis City Hall and Hennepin County Courthouse building in a guided tour every third Wednesday. Meet the tour guide at noon in the Rotunda by the Father of Waters statue. You can also explore the building yourself with this brochure.
