Mall of America®

From the mysterious sharks at SEA LIFE Minnesota Aquarium to the dozens of thrill rides at Nickelodeon Universe®, Bloomington's Mall of America is so much more than a shopping center. Let your kids' imaginations run wild in the LEGO® play area, then browse more than 520 stores as you hunt for your favorite brands. Wondering whether to buy that perfect outfit you found? Go for it—all clothing sales at Mall of America are tax-free!

Shop every store

You'll find everything from gadgets and runway fashion to sporting goods and Disney® merchandise at Mall of America. Whether you're searching for designer shoes or a refreshing smoothie, you can get it as you wander the mall's 4.3 miles of storefronts. Take a break from shopping to enjoy a quick hot dog or a relaxing steak dinner at one of the dozens of restaurants found in and around the mall.

Fun and games

After a day of shopping, take the kids to Nickelodeon Universe, where they can spin, loop, and fly their way through dozens of rides after meeting favorite characters like SpongeBob Square Pants. You can spend an afternoon under the sea at SEA LIFE Minnesota Aquarium, which is home to a 300-foot ocean tunnel filled with sharks, jellyfish, and other underwater wonders. Try out your creative side at Crayola Experience, or take a virtual trip to scenic US landmarks at FlyOver America. At the American Girl® store, kids can have a meal or tea with a special seat at the table for their American Girl doll. There's even a hair salon for dolls to get pampered.

Special events

The mall hosts hundreds of events throughout the year, so whether you're looking for a concert, group exercise class, book club, celebrity meet-and-greet, or fashion expo, you'll find something exciting here. In the winter, you can ice-skate outside the mall's entrance, and in the summer, you can check out the "sharktacular" events held at the aquarium. To keep your little ones entertained, join the Toddler Tuesdays® program for crafts and story time.

Group Experiences

If you're in Bloomington with a group, Mall of America offers in-depth adventures through their Group Experiences program. The Nickelodeon Universe Physics Program is both fun and educational: you get to ride thrill rides and then learn all about how they work. For the ultimate experience, schedule a behind-the-scenes tour, where you can explore the mall's giant storage rooms, see Paul Bunyan up close, and learn the secrets that keep one of the world's largest malls running.
