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

Mia is a really excellent comprehensive art museum. There's a little bit of many different kinds of art, so everyone should be able to find something interesting. It's a really nice complement to the Walker, which focuses on contemporary work.
