How does the Minneapolis & Saint Paul Home Tour work?

The home tour is a free, self-guided event.

Find a printed guide (a tabloid-newspaper publication), which includes a description of each home and maps showing home locations, at libraries (Hennepin County and Minneapolis libraries, Ramsey County and Saint Paul libraries) in the few weeks before the tour, and at the homes themselves during the tour.

Look for Home Tour signs at major intersections directing you to the homes.

In most cases, homeowners greet visitors. Visitors can also speak informally with experts about home buying, remodeling and other topics. Visitors go on the tour to get remodeling ideas and learn about neighborhoods.
