Not only will fans be able to step into the future at U.S. Bank Stadium in late July, they will also be able to walk over to the Mill City Museum and take a look back at the Metrodome.
The museum is opening a photo exhibit called "Up and Down: The H.H.H. Metrodome Portfolio." The project chronicles the dome from construction in 1980-82 to opening in 1982 and demolition in 2014.
Photographer Mark E. Jensen chronicled the building's entire life cycle in black and white, also capturing 30 years of change in downtown Minneapolis.
The $1.1 billion U.S. Bank Stadium, which replaced the Metrodome, will open for free public tours on July 23-24. The new building is almost double the size of the Metrodome.
The Metrodome exhibit begins July 26 and runs through Nov. 6 at the museum at 704 S. Second St in Minneapolis.
The exhibit is included in the price of admission to the Mill City Museum.
The Vikings played in the Metrodome from 1982 to 2013. The Minnesota Twins played there as well, winning the World Series in 1987 and 1991.
