If you intend to make your visit mostly indoors, any time of the year is a good time. Just take into account some special periods (Christmas or Easter, for instance) or the dozens of events (ranging from celebrity appearances to product promotions or fashions shows...) and the differences between weekdays and weekends (and holidays) in terms of crowds. If you want to avoid big crowds then avoid the weekends and holidays.

Open Hours: 10 am - 9:30 pm, Monday-Saturday; 11 am - 7 pm, Sunday 


WHEN NOT TO GO TO THE MALL OF AMERICA

Avoid weekends and holidays if you want to avoid crowds. The Mall tends to be very crowded in these periods.  For low accommodation rates in the region avoid July and August.
