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

I went to this museum because I was enthralled with the architecture. Not so enthralled with the inside. But, art is personal. Employees (guards? volunteers?) were standing around in groups talking to each other.

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
