New earth-toned paint breathed new life into the fair’s Depression-era Horticulture Building.
History & Heritage Center
The new 5,600-square-foot Minnesota State Fair History & Heritage Center showcases treasured artifacts and photographs from the fair’s more than 150 years of history. The facility is available for event rental throughout the year.
A former trolley car arch was found during renovations of the West End Market. It was salvaged and restored and now arriving guests enjoy the threshold as visitors did back in the roaring ‘20s at the fair’s new main gate.
