The Walker Art Center is a wonderful facility - the parkade parking is cheap and easy to get into, the staff are friendly and well informed and the art is outstanding! We were there during the International Pop exhibition and Art at the Center: 75 Years of Walker Collections. This is now a "must do" on our next trip to... More

After visiting the Sculpture Garden, I proceeded to visit this Art Center. There are 2 entrances; I used the one located along the Hennepen Street. I asked the Guard who opened the door for me about the entrance fee. He said that it was FREE for the day (visited on August 1, 2015). Otherwise, the entrance fee for adults is... More

The Walker Art Center is a lovely contemporary museum that has a really nice permanent collection, but brings in excellent traveling exhibits. Recently, we went to the International Pop exhibit and thought it was really strong. They almost always include some media aspect as well, often films. In addition, they offer live performances, such as dance, concerts, readings, and lectures.... More

Right now the museum has an artists designed mini golf connected to it. Pay for mini golf and get into the museum included. It was a very fun experience and the inside of the museum was wonderful as well!

The highlight of our visit was the mini golf. My husband and I had a blast playing one of the courses. If you play mini course your admission fee is included. This is a great deal since it cost $12 to play golf and the admission fee for the Walker is more. The museum was interesting but somewhat disappointing. The... More

I didn't like pop art the first time around and it hasn't grown on me, so having multiple levels of pieces from that era did not inspire me, and that was the focus when we were there. I found several pieces I loved elsewhere, pieces that made me want to stop, study, and enjoy, but in general we moved through... More

Loved the pop art exhibit, but this museum has all kinds of modern art. Big, open and airy, the space itself allows you to appreciate various installations from all angles.
