Mueller Sunflowers

Mueller's Sunflowers are a sustainable public art installation that are powered entirely by the sun. Visitors can explore the hiking trail that winds along beside the massive flower-shaped sculptures.

Tip: If you have time, make sure you stick around until the sun goes down, when the pieces become illuminated like giant flowers made out of light.

Museum of the Weird

It's true that the Museum of the Weird is small, but it packs a punch. Not only do they have a wax museum, taxidermy mermaids, and monsters galore, they're also home to the Minnesota Iceman, an alleged Bigfoot who spent his early years traveling the world in a giant brick of ice.

Tip: The museum is small, so if you can, they suggest that you visit during the week when the traffic isn't quite so busy.
