We were in Minneapolis for a wedding and spent a few very enjoyable hours at the MIA. We particularly enjoyed the US, European, and Chinese galleries, as well as the lunch cafe.

Uplifting way to spend a rainy day, and the cafe had a range of offerings to make it through lunch as well. It is free, but do consider a donation MIA.

I have visited a lot of museums around the world, but this one is easily in the top 3 It’s also “free”. Make sure you have a lot of time to enjoy and read about all the exhibits.

Definitely a collection worthy of a large American metro area known for its artistry. The museum was quite attractive and well laid out. Overall I enjoyed my day's visit and look forward to returning some day.

My wife and I were in Minneapolis for a wedding and decided to visit the Minneapolis institute while there. The collection exceeded our expectations and we were very glad we went. Definitely a worthwhile stop while in town.

Just come and explore. On our weekday visit in late May, we saw 6-8 yellow school buses parked outside and a lot of students of all ages roaming around the whole place. The teachers and guides took them everywhere. Since the... More
