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.
While my wife was a patient at the Mayo Clinic we took a tour it which included the Plummer Building. It was a wonderful tour and quite enlightening about the history of the Mayo Clinic and the Mayo family. I would highly recommend this tour...More
If you like older period buildings, the Plummer building is for you and if you're at the original Mayo Clinic in Rochester,Mn., particularly in winter, it will be on your (vey short) list of things to do. It is an attractive older blooding directly across...More
The architecture is beautiful and so intricate in the building. We have been visiting the Mayo Clinic for the past 20 years and had never been to this building other than wondering what it was from the outside. Has a nice piece of history in...More
We had some time to kill between appointments so walked over to the Plummer Building. The historical suite is full of artifacts from the Mayo Clinic and is absolutely breathtaking in its beauty. What amazing things the Mayo Brothers accomplished.
For anyone who enjoys 1920’s buildings, this building sets the standard.
Tours available, although I don’t know the schedule. Sorry.
Dr Plummer was a genius responsible for the smooth, organized function of Mayo Clinic from its beginnings.

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!
