Kate Roberts reviews the Mill City Museum, opened by the Minnesota Historical Society in September 2003. The Mill City Museum tells the industrial, urban, and social history of the flour and baking capital of the world.

Kate Roberts and John Kindell, exhibit designers, faced numerous challenges, such as how to tell a story with few artifacts and focusing on a narrative with so many interpretative choices.

Roberts explains how the exhibit designers addressed these obstacles and the final decisions they made to create an interactive and engaging experience for visitors.
