Minneapolis in 19 Minutes Flat

See the film "Minneapolis in 19 Minutes Flat," a whirlwind tour of our fair city, written by and starring local humorist, playwright and radio personality Kevin Kling.

"Minneapolis in 19 Minutes Flat," is a lighthearted take on the city's history using photos, film and television footage, Kling's own stories and memories, and animation.

The short film mixes Kling's trademark laconic humor and shrewd observation with an elegiac description of what makes Minneapolis unique. Kling expounds on the following questions related to the city: "Who started it?" "Why is it here?" "How did it get named?" and "What's with all the Lutherans?"

Along the way, Kling describes characters ranging from the mighty and powerful - Father Hennepin, Franklin Steele, Wilbur Foshay - to the notorious and entertaining - Kid Cann, the Andrews Sisters, Prince. In his words, "A city lives through its people and its spirit is housed in their stories."

"Minneapolis in 19 Minutes Flat" plays every 30 minutes and is included in museum admission.
