  • The Foshay Tower is one of the most recognizable landmarks in the Twin Cities. Utilities magnate Wilbur Foshay built this endearing homage to the Washington Monument in 1929. At 447 feet housing 31 stories, the Foshay Tower was the tallest building in the Midwest for 48 years. Visit the museum to uncover the remarkable story behind this unique skyscraper and its eccentric creator. And view the city from the outdoor Observation Deck on the 30th floor.
