Getting to the Historical Suite is half the experience: bronze sculpted entry doors, brass railings, leaded glass windows, cork and parquet floors - all accessed through decorated corridors illuminated at low light levels are reminders about how office space technology and tastes have changed.
If you are at Mayo Clinic and need to get some fresh air and clear your head, a tour of this building would be in order. The 1920s architecture is stunning and the museum is a great bit of history on Mayo.
This building is across the street from the Mayo Clinics Mayo/Gonda buildings. The outside of the building can be viewed from the upper floors of the Mayo buildings. It is worth walking inside to see what beautiful buildings were like in the 1920 era.

According to the website, the Historical Suite on Plummer third floor is open without charge to patients, visitors and staff for self-guided tours weekdays from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Also, General Service offers tours of the Mayo Clinic Historical Suite. Tours begin in Judd Hall, subway level of the Mayo Building, at 10:00 am weekdays. There is an information kiosk in the subway of the Gonda building where you can get more information. I know that I have had friends visiting that were not patients or family members who took the general tour so you should be good to go. You will learn a lot!
