“Worth a brief visit”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2013

A small collection in an interesting building on the University of MN campus. We especially enjoyed the "Apts" installation.

“Like modern art, this is for you”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2013

I loved visiting the Art Museum, it was a little difficult to find, but I am so glad we made it. There is a wide range of art there, and it is extremely well displayed. The building is pretty weird, and I am sure people visit to see the building as well as the art, china and furniture. Well recommended, and don't forget to go into the shop as they have some affordable gifts in there too.

“Gehry delight”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2013

Loved the titanium exterior, a precursor to his Guggenheim Bilbao. Exhibits interesting. Permanent collection alright but some stunners not to be missed like the Georgia O'Keefe and Arthur Dove in the collection. Spaces indoors and out great. At a wedding there which was spectacular.

“A museum across the Mississippi river”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2013

You can recognize the Gehry style from outside.
When I visited there was a free tour on going. Thegirl was very interesting, accurate in her comments.
I remember that I liked Kienholz art and I advise to try his installation.
don't forget to go to the small terrace to enjoy the view.
