Officially called the St Louis County Heritage and Arts Center, this museum is commonly known as the Depot. It has a lot of local artwork, reflecting Minnesota's Scandanavian heritage and culture. It also has some good historical exhibits.

Built in 1892 by the Boston firm of Peabody, Stearns and Furber, this building is a fine example of the French Norman style. In 1910, it served seven rail lines, with thousand of travellers passing through its doors daily. It's now listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

Address: 506 W Michigan St Duluth, Minnesota 55802-1505
Directions: It's in the heart of downtown, near the Lake.
