Foshay Tower Museum

Today it was an unseasonably warm day. Probably one of the last days for outside sketching for us Twin Cities urban sketchers. Roberta and I took a trip to the top of the Foshay Tower in downtown Minneapolis. The Foshay is now a fancy hotel called W. The hotel has a a succinct history of the building and its transformation.

Information on the museum, hours etc HERE.

Here is my two-page spread in my small journal of the view from the observation deck and the museum (click to make sketches bigger):
