Great museum of modern art

This museum is all about 20th century art and it showcases it very well. If you are looking for historical art, head over the the Minneapolis Institute of Art.

We'd be recommended to go to the Walker Art museum but I have to say I was a bit disappointed. I'm not a huge art fan but I can appreciate good art and I just didn't "get" most of what was on show. The layout is also a bit off putting and with no flow, so you have to go... More

These guys really know what they are doing. The exhibits are laid out wonderfully and they have a really impressive collection. My boyfriend is an art preparator for another museum and he was very impressed. I loved the souvenir at the gift shop that said "modern art = I could do that + yeah, but you didn't." So true! Some...

I guess the Walker might be interesting to you if you truly get and appreciate modern art but personally I think this place is a giant waste of time. They hang crap on the wall that could have been done by literally anyone and call it art simply because this "artist" made a name for him/herself with something else or... More

One of the Big 5 of Modern Art Museums, the Walker is outstanding with it's permanent collection, 75 for 75 and on going International Pop.This summer, the Mini Golf by Artists return for a whimsical play at the sport of miniature golf. The Walker is adjacent to the Sculpture Park. Plan to spend a few hours, at least and don't... More

A unique and ever-changing experience. So appreciate these spaces and programming. The architectural detail and the melding of the original structure and the Herzog & de Meuron expansion is intriguing - walk through every "corner". Enjoy the subtle shimmer of the venetian plaster and the grillework crowning the gallery entries. Don't miss a walk through the Minneapolis Sculpture garden next... More

My favorite event of the year. Rock the Garden! One, now two days of bands. If you are here in June consider a day sitting on the grass listening to bands, food trucks, swag, and fun.

I will admit it. I don't like modern art, and I only went here because it's free for me as a member of NARM (North American Reciprocal Museums). I also went for the Sculpture Garden, but regrettably is was pouring rain (you've got to love the attached, underground parking, which I guess is common in Minneapolis). The building itself is...

The building itself is very interesting, and there is a Nice shop. In addition, the Exhibitions are always of great quality. The pop art Exhibition which is beeing shown now is great. There is also a few Places where one can eat, even if the restaurant was closed due to a private event when we visited there this time.

The space frames the collection and curated exhibits well. When I saw the museum, there was an international pop art exhibit--fantastic! There are also workshops, and the sculpture garden is a short walk away. Free entry Thursday nights!!
