If you haven’t been to Little Falls during this 2019 travel season but are planning to come, you may be surprised to find that the Minnesota Department of Transportation has numerous road construction projects around town. Road construction includes the entire downtown stretch of Broadway from the east side through the west side, though the downtown Mississippi River bridge is open.

In order to make our way around the construction, locals and visitors are driving through areas of town that don’t normally get a lot of traffic. The benefit is that we get to see things we don’t normally see, like all the people who fish by the dam or the heavily wooded industrial area on the west side.

To help you find your way to The Charles A. Weyerhaeuser Memorial Museum this summer, use the following directions. (Thanks to the Charles A. Lindbergh House and Museum next door for their assistance with directions!)
