Check first to see if your favorites are on display. Some great gems are still there though, and should continue to be great.

Large collection of arts from all over the world from Stone Age to modern history. The Chinese Qing Dynastic architecture is very impressive. Highly recommended for all ages and everyone who may or may not like museum, just allocate your time accordingly. Kids may find it boring after an hour but you never know... Note the museum close on Monday.

If you enjoy art and are in the Twin Cities - go! - even for an hour or so. Brilliant audio tours and exhibits, and all for a donation. The examples of the impressionists like Corot are truly marvellous (many from the Hill House in St. Paul, another great place to visit) as are the medieval art and some great sculpture. Places to eat and relax and really easy parking. A jewel!

The Minneapolis Institute of arts is in a great part of the city. MIA often has paid exhibits, but the collection is largely free. It is spacious and allows for a leisurely visit. There is a great, reasonably priced cafe as well. Be sure to take the time to appreciate the views of the city as well as MIA has a great vantage point of downtown.

The art and the museum were beautiful. If I was alone or with a group of adults this trip would have been enjoyable. However, I came with two well behave children; children that have been to world class museums before. The children were not running, screaming, touching, or causing a scene. There were other family with children that were also well behave at the museum. The problem came when the guards began following, staring, and stalking the parents and their children gallery to gallery. The guards to did not say anything, but just leered at us. I could sense that we were not welcome. Very uncomfortable.....
