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!!

Went to the Walker in April along with other members of my high schools art club. Sculpture garden is a plus. I can't wait to visit again this summer when their garden terrace is planted. Beautiful building filled with interesting and mind opening art.

Been here several times and, while it's not going to be the best art center you've been to, you'll find generally something for everyone. A big favorite is their annual mini-golf course during the Summer.

The Walker Art Center is my favorite museum of contemporary art. The collections are so well organized that you easily go from one section to the next without having to waste any of your valuable time. I was able to do the whole museum in about two hours. My favorite exhibits were the International Pop and the 75 Years of... More

It doesn't take long to go through, we did all exhibits in about an hour. The pricing was fair and they give good discounts! They even have free days! The sculpture garden was also very nice and is always free!
