Other Art / Architecture / Musuems, Minneapolis: 19 reviews and 52 photos
I wrote about the church in a previous tip but this is a nice little bonus for Christmas fans of all ages. Upstairs on the second floor are glass display cases filled with 200 crèches from 80 different countries, lovingly collected by member Mary Spencer Rogers and given as a gift to the church in 2002. The wonderful variety of styles and mediums reflect the congregation's respect and acceptance of diverse races, lifestyles and cultures and are great fun for a look-see.
In the room outside the curator's office downstairs (just ask where to find it) are a few more as well as a delightful display of Noah's Arks that they're just starting to collect. Bring the kids - they'll love it!
(Sorry the shots are a little fuzzy; it was a pain shooting through the glass)
Address: DOWNTOWN: 1200 Marquette Avenue
Directions: Westminster Presbyterian Church: downtown Minneapolis, at the corner of Nicollet Mall and12th Street. Press the buzzer on the side door and ask to see the crèches; they'll let you in.
