I throughly enjoyed my time at the Walker Art Center. The museum is nicely done and they have a great collection of very unique pieces of art. Additionally, there is a great view of downtown from one of the balconies there- great opportunity for a photo opp.

I have been to art museums all over the world, and the Walker is definitely one of my favorites. When it comes to comprehensive arts experiences and programming, it's in my opinion, probably the best in the world.
