U.S. Bank allowed its employees and their families a special sneak peak of the new U.S. Bank Stadium on Sunday, dubbing the event U.S. Bank Family Day.

The turnout was estimated to be about 40,000.

Previously, only people who attended the soccer game last Wednesday between the English club team Chelsea and Italy's A.C. Milan have had the opportunity to see the inside of the stadium – which took three years and more than $1 billion to build. Most attendees had good things to say about the stadium, except for a few who complained that the seats were cheaply made. 

At Sunday's event, U.S. bank employees and their families could wait in line for a behind the scenes tour of the locker rooms and field.
