I usually go to the MIA at least three times a year and always come away in awe of the beautiful art work. The spring Art in Bloom show is a must see and the creativity is amazing!

This is a wonderful museum. I have been coming here for years. I go thru some part of it at least 3 times a year - many years more than that. They have wonderful temporary exhibits and amazing permanent ones. Some of my favorite parts - their Target exhibitions. We have seen so many different great ones! In december they... More

Hard to see it all in a day but do so and enjoy lunch in the cafe. Excellent American collection as well as Chinese, Korean and Japanese works of art. They still have period rooms which you don't see that often any more.

Many people visiting the cities would not expect it to have such a wonderful art collection. It can satisfy all the demands of the visitors as it houses different kinds of art from medieval to modern. Lovers of impressionists don't miss the place! Chinese, Japanese,Korean and much more can be seen in the Institute of Arts and it is Free.

With only four days to use and very little money, giving a sampling of all the city has to offer obviously had to include the MIA for which I have a low-income membership. The variety and quality of exhibits stretches imagination far beyond the everyday world of small-town rural living and brought forth many "look at that!!" exclamations, and it... More

It is a great place to visit. Free admission -- unless you wish to see a special exhibit. I was with a friend and we did see the special one that included ipad type portable sounds to go with the paintings. Unbelievable! We also checked out a photography area - free. Very cool pictures of people. There is also a... More

The Minneapolis Institute of Art (MIA) is a fabulous place and it is free except for special exhibits . The special exhibits are well worth the charge ( $10 to $20 per person), we try to time visits to when there are also special exhibits. Sometimes you can catch guided tours of the exhibits which make them even better. A... More

Mia is an amazing place. I was there for a special exhibit which was very well done, but their permanent collection warrants many repeat visits. Membership is free.
