Home Minnesota Experience
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. For decades, TPT has dived into the whitewater of bygone eras and emerged with insight about our shared values as Minnesotans. Enter Minnesota Experience, an invitation to follow TPT into the slipstream of time on-air and online. 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. "Minnesota Experience" airs each Monday on TPT-2 at 9 p.m. For more on the schedule CLICK HERE.
