WCCO Urban Exploration Story

This is an interesting story regarding urban exploration that appeared on WCCO yesterday. It features Mike Gilday, a local explorer and photographer. It is a little shallow when it comes to photos and content, but there is nothing really negative in it, no mention several recent deaths in local grain elevators that were rumored to be urban explorers.

Urban Exploration Film Screening

This new documentary, co-produced by Channel Z Films of Minneapolis, delves into the world of urban exploration, a growing subculture of adventure-seekers from around the world who explore places most people would never dream of going.

Doors open to Mill City Museum at 6:30 p.m. with a cash bar and an exhibit of photographs of hidden Twin Cities locations taken by urban explorers during their "missions."

After the screening, audience members can discuss the film with the director and several of the urban explorers featured in the film. Participants can take guided mini-tours of hidden places in the Washburn A Mill, a destination for urban explorers in the decades before it became Mill City Museum, and visit the museum's exhibit galleries, included in the ticket price.
