The Landmark Center got its start way back in 1892. Originally it was used as the Post Office and the Federal Court House. Now it is a cultural center that highlights theater, music, exhibitions, dance and a host of other special events throughout the year.
It is currently owned and supported by Ramsey County. Minnesota Landmarks, a nonprofit agency who specializes in managing landmarks in the area, is responsible for managing the Landmark Center.
Landmark Center is open every day to the general public. The hours of operation are as follows:
- Monday through Friday from 8am to 5pm
- Thursday from 8am to 8pm
- Saturday from 10am to 5pm
- Sunday from 12pm to 5pm
