Doors Open Minneapolis is a weekend-long event that allows the public free, behind-the-scenes access to buildings in the City of Minneapolis that are architecturally, culturally, or socially significant. St. Anthony Falls Visitor Center and the Upper St. Anthony Falls Lock & Dam will be open to the public during this event.

Explore this unique river navigation structure and get up close to St. Anthony Falls, including walking around the top of the highest lock on the Upper Mississippi River! Knowledgeable park rangers will be onsite to answer questions and guide tours. The lock wall is outside, so dress appropriately for the weather.
