We saw the Martin Luther exhibit here. MIA did a great job of organizing the artifacts and memorabilia into appropriate groupings (rooms). In addition to the ML exhibit we attended there were numerous displays from around the world. This is a big place and the staff (security) were very helpful in directing us and giving directions. I'm not sure what... More

How can you go wrong with a FREE admission museum? Love this place. They consistently have fantastic exhibits (some of these do cost money) and many amazing permanent collection pieces such as pieces from a Frank Lloyd Wright home and eastern and Asian collections. They have a wonderful calendar of events and tours for kids, families, and adults. They have... More

Amazing sampling of great art from around the world, especially for the price of a free-will donation. Personally enjoy the Impressionism section. The museum also has great staff-lead tours which makes you appreciate the paintings and sculptures even more.

The MIA museum is such a wonderful place to checkout some fantastic art of all genres. You can't see everything in one day. I recommend one to two hours at most. You can obviously go another time. I love it there.

Wonderful art collection. It's family days are great for kids and the children's room is a nice getaway, especially in the winter.

I was not prepared to see the quality and quantity of work inside of this gorgeous museum. Is certainly one of the best art spaces in the country.

Having been so many times to the Met in NYC, I did not expect that level of museum in the Cities. I was SO wrong! Smaller in size but it was absolute perfection. It fed my soul, is sleek, peaceful, an absolute delight. Fewer people in the galleries as well, which helped me to absorb each piece. Stunning views of... More

We got there a little late since it is so huge a place! We loved every room we went through but most of all I was drawn to the 1950's era area; kitchen, home appliances, and items from that era. Also, when you go -- try not to miss the "dog Tag" exhibit which is larger than life. An exhibit... More

As a lover of art museums, this was a great experience. Admission is free unless you want to go into the special exhibit. You definitely need multiple hours here if you intend to do more than a quick look through. Definitely grab a map when you walk in, or you'll get lost like I did!

Beautiful place to relax. A great place to relax and witness beautiful art. We were not sure if the kids would appreciate it, but they loved it. We will visit again when we are in Minneapolis. Thanks.
