There are many aspects to Target Field
that you might like to know. We'll try to cover as many of them as we
can. If there's something that's not covered that you'd like to know

Target Field is an open-air stadium that seats approximately 39,500 fans. There is standing room for an additional 1,500 fans.
The ballpark is right in the downtown Minneapolis, Minnesota.
One of the most convenient ways to get to Target Field is by light rail train. You get dropped off just outside of the stadium so you won't have to worry about traffic or paying to park.
The train runs from Target Field on one end to the Mall of America on the other end. With eighteen stops in-between, it takes 35-45 minutes to get there if you ride the entire trip. Along those stops, you can catch other routes that will take you to most of the Minneapolis metro area.

You'll be able to find this location right outside of the New Era Team Store.
Hungry for breakfast? Try some of the Target Field Mini Donuts. They come in a plastic bucket or you can buy them by the bag. I didn't have any, but they look pretty tasty. Some folks like to have breakfast for any meal and now you can have it at the ballpark!
If breakfast isn't what you're looking for, they also have Walleye, Ribs, Kabobs and sides of Beef just to mention a few of them and that's probably some of the best food at Target Field.
There is a chef at the stadium who cooks the beef right in front of you. It costs $12.50 a plate.
Target Field has a big variety of food selections, including a selection of state fair food, with turkey legs and corn on the cob. There is the standard fare with hot dogs, brats and burgers, but they also have Walleye! Not only is there a good selection of food, but they also stock Minnesota beers and other drinks made in the state.
The pictures shown above of the outfield seats are on the main level. The seats in both left field and right field are metal benches with seat backs. The seats in center field are individual.wooden seats. The Minnesota Twins schedule is listed on our website along with a seating chart that shows the seating from each section of the stadium.
Target Field Seats and Disability Seating
The Twins work with an organization called Ucare for special needs and disability seating at the ballpark. There is accessible seating available on all levels of the stadium in some 700 locations. UCare accessible seating is available to all guests with any type of special seating needs. And, the UCare accessible seating at the ballpark is designed to accommodate wheelchairs.

The Twins have a Guest Services number at the ballpark that can assist you with specific wheelchair seating information. Their number is 1-800-33-TWINS.
On the upper level of the stadium and directly behind home plate is the Twins Pub. You might think it's for Club members, but anyone can walk in. It's also where the organist is located. Yes, they even have a live organist, it's not pre-recorded music that you get at many ballparks. Directly to the first base side of the Twins Pub is the Family Section. Who would have thought a pub and the family section would be located near one another?
