Minnesota may mark the northern blade of America’s spine, but this is no flyover country. This is important country, the stomping grounds of choice for movers and shakers, innovators and dreamers, builders and plunderers. No one tells Minnesota history like Twin Cities PBS.

Tapping into TPT’s rich archive of historical stories and adding new ones to the fold, Minnesota Experience holds the mirror of history up to the modern moment as a force that can forever change who we are and who we want to be.
