I attended a stressful conference in MPLS and let’s just say that Minnesota is not a typical August vacation destination. It was hot and humid and sticky. This museum was an oasis from heat, bad tempers and stress!
The Asian collection is wonderful and takes...More
Hard to believe this treasure of a museum does not charge an admission fee. Broad range of artistic styles on display from American art to European and Asian art. Start on the top floor and work you way down. For lovers of traditional art this...More

On a quick week end visit to Minneapolis, I placed this as my primary goal after lunch on Sunday. Although there were several road closures and detours due to construction, we arrived at our destination safely, and parked at the garage next to the museum....More

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 museum was so spacious and had many many collections, everyone would feel welcome and could find quiet corners.
Just come and explore as a family. There are things for everyone of all ages, artistic tastes and experience levels.
