Several show times to choose from, as they are very popular and do sell out.

On a snowy day I made my way from downtown for an afternoon visit while in town on business. The building is fantastic, and their restaurant is open later than the museum, so it’s a good place to have a drink after you’re finished viewing...More
One of America's many private collections turned public, the Walker Art Center is likely best known for its outdoor Sculpture Garden, but inside the space itself resides a fairly well curated collection of modern art, the spacious layout no doubt underutilized though on the whole...More
Parking is in adjacent ramp. There is an admission fee. Museum has a cafe with alcoholic beverages. We did not go there but it looked popular. Shop was pricy as was parking and admission. Collection was dark and monotonous. We like vibrant collections so this...More
I went inside to get out of the cold after visiting the sculpture garden (a must see) and was so pleasantly surprised. I am not typically a modern art fan, but the way the artwork was displayed helped me gain a greater understanding of the...More

Weekend getaway in April (3 Replies)
Each year, my friend and I meet somewhere for a girls’ weekend. She is always surprised by the destination of our trip—her husband and I plan it. This year, we are seeking a cultural/art destination (my friend is an artist). We are considering Minneapolis/St. Paul. I know the Walker Art Center is a well-respected art museum there and there's also the art institute, but that’s about all I know. We’d only be there 3-4 days and it would probably have to happen in early- to mid-April. ...More

Google the "Hennepin Theatre District" to see if there are any shows at the 4 theaters on Hennepin Ave downtown during your stay. Do the same with the Guthrie Theater. You will be impressed by the Walker. There's a Museum of Russian Art about 50 blocks south of downtown off I35W if interested.

You can do a map view of the TA restaurant list and zoom in.... tripadvisor.com/…MAPVIEW There are a lot of restaurants in and around the Loring Park area, but since your profile says you live in Minneapolis, maybe you knew that. I'd also look at yelp. Maybe check Cafe Lurcat. Tons of places heading back towards Uptown.

Going to Baltimore from Dc and flying out of BwI at 9pm. Would like to visit Walker Art Center and possibly Fells point and have an early dinner. Suggestions for dinner- Kali's or Oceanaire or John Stevens-any suggestions for things to do would be great! Thanks.

I've never heard of the Walker Art center. There is a Walters Art Gallery. What type of art are you interested in? Is the art gallery your reason for coming to Baltimore? I like Kali's Court and John Stevens(both in Fells Point) but they have very different atmospheres. What type of place are you looking for?
