We read about the church on Trip Advisor and thought it would be a worthwhile stop on our first day in Minneapolis. We parked at a parking garage directly across the street where it was $5 for the entire day and we were able to see this church and then the sculpture garden down the street with no worries. The church was welcoming and there were other visitors quietly appreciating the beauty while we were there as well. We were allowed to take pictures and just enjoy the serenity of the beautiful structure. If you are religious or love architecture, this is a must-do if you have 30 extra minutes in the day!

Another beautiful church near downtown Minneapolis.
It was well worth the stop.
You are able to go inside and sometimes there are tours.
The architecture is wonderful.

We were at another attraction and the church is right across the street so we decided to go. The church was beautiful inside and there was a tour going on during our walk through. There was also a church service being conducted. The temperature inside the church was very comfortable and it is worth a visit. The church reminded me of ones we saw in Montreal.

This was an awesome place to visit, despite the construction. The stained glass was beautiful and there were so many great pictures to take!
