How did Eat Street, the length of Nicollet Avenue famous for its range of delicious destinations, develop? Who were the men and women who built these businesses, and how did they shape the street? How has the neighborhood changed over the years? And why is it called Eat Street? Find out in a tour of Hennepin History Museum’s “Eat Street at 20: In their Own Words.” The exhibit turns the spotlight on the evolution of one of Hennepin County's favorite streets, as told through the stories of restaurant owners and business proprietors who were instrumental in the development of Eat Street as a culinary destination, a model of community revitalization and cross-cultural collaboration, and a home to vibrant immigrant communities. Admission is $3 for seniors, $5 for adults.
OPTIONAL: Join your tourmates for lunch afterwards at an Eat Street restaurant.
