The museum is reasonably close to downtown Minneapolis. It has interesting permanent displays that are free to view, in my opinion they are worth an hour here-and-there (we keep going back) and then an easy walk or drive to the west (Nicollet Avenue), for supper....More
This museum is much larger than I had anticipated. And it contains a wide variety of art. Since we were on a tight schedule, my husband and I decided to only view the Modern and Contemporary wings of the library. I really loved how the...More
This museum has a wonderful collection of recognizable artists. And, it must be noted, carefully chosen art that fills in the galleries with visual treasures.
The collection of Asian art is fine. Most impressive to me was the labeling which veered away from minimalist to...More
This museum has something for everyone, a truly diverse collection that in many ways rivals the best museums I have visited around the world. There are a wide range of different exhibitions, from impressive collections of Asian art/artefacts (from ancient to modern) to exhibitions of...More
Very impressive Asia and Buddhist art, covering the ancient to contemporary. They have a Japanese tea ceremony house. I was amazed by their quality and quantity of the collection. Highly recommend visiting.
MIA is a wonder every time. The exhibits are always excellent, it is spacious and grand, even the building itself is a work of art. It is very accessible and easy to navigate, I have accompanied an group of elderly women a few times as...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.
