I ended up going to this museum on a Monday, and they are closed on Monday, so I am giving the rating of Very good only because of the amazing stainless steel architecture and design.
This is my first live viewing of a Frank Gehry...More
Housed in the first museum Frank Geary built is the Weisman collection.
Worth a visit if you only viewed the Marsden Hartley works. Ditto the incredible Julian Stanczak triptych
Free admission but you must pay for parking- modest cost
Do come and enjoy

The Weisman museum is worth visiting just for the beautiful setting overlooking the Mississippi across from downtown Minneapolis, but throw in a Frank Gehry building, and a small but nice collection (including a Prince exhibition), and this becomes a top attraction in Minneapolis. And it's...More
We came to see the Prince exhibit which was on the small side, but VERY impressive. We enjoyed seeing their permanent collection as well as another special exhibit they had looking at the effects of climate change on the artic regions.
A beautiful designed building...More
