For almost a century, the gardens at Munsinger Clemens Gardens have offered visitors access to the beauty and intrigue of horticulture through its unique blend of European-inspired gardens and natural landscapes. The site is divided into two distinct sections: the Munsinger Gardens, characterized by meandering paths, charming fountains, and a large peacock cage, and the Clemens Gardens, which boast multiple fragrant rose collections. Together, these gardens provide a tranquil escape for group travelers seeking a peaceful stroll amidst the beauty of the blooms.
Treat your group to a musical or a cover band performance at the Paramount Center for the Arts. This creative community hub is in a restored 800-seat historic theater and plays host to a variety of shows. From comedies to dramas, there’s always something new to share with the public. In addition to performances, groups can visit three art galleries or call to schedule an art class on pottery, woodworking, or painting.
St. Cloud is the capital of Stearns County, and the Stearns History Museum attracts thousands of visitors annually and offers groups a comprehensive look at the history of central Minnesota. The museum features a mix of permanent and rotating exhibits, so each visit feels like a fresh experience. Learn about the area’s natural history, delight in the collection of historical toys, and discover the impact of the granite industry on St. Cloud. Is your group interested in a niche topic? Contact the program curator directly to tailor a tour to your group’s specific interests.
Depending on the timing of your tour, groups can attend a performance by the talented St. Cloud Symphony Orchestra, which is composed of local musicians. Hear major classical works by celebrated composers in the 900-seat Ritsche Auditorium at St. Cloud State University.
