My first visit to this University of MN Museum. Spectacular from the outside and a small gem on the inside. The huge glass fish has been relocated there from the Walker garden! Interesting collection of contemporary art and an actual hundred year old apartmrntbhallway.
Spectacular building by Frank Gehry on University of Minnesota campus is a work of art. There is no admission fee. Parking is in a ramp below the museum. Public transportation is a few steps away. Nice gift shop at entrance. Collection of contemporary art is...More
Designed by Frank Gehry the Weisman Art Museum no doubt sticks out amongst the rest of Minneapolis' architecture, but between the small collection and price it simply lacks the relevance of Minneapolis Institute of Art though the few Master's pieces contained in the space are...More
The first Frank Gehry Museum is outstanding. Sitting on the banks of the Mississippi River, provides amazing setting that is unique in all four seasons. Fantastic permanent collection as well as special exhibits.
The Weisman museum is much smaller and less well known than the Minneapolis Institute of Art but I felt worth the time. There is only 1 floor to the exhibit, but there is a really nice display of paintings, sculpture and modern art. Outside, you...More
Absolutely love this museum, its a piece of art in itself! The permanent collection is great as well as the interesting exhibits that they bring. Have found some fun and different gifts at their shop and you can't beat showing art in a Frank Gehry...More
Nice permanent collection as well as exhibitions. I mistakenly reviewed the Walker Art Museum when I meant to review the Weisman. I have been here also for a wedding, but the venue is best for the art. Interesting to have a Gehry in town, however.
Fair warning... this museum is small. It consists of one level of art in several large spaces. But for a small museum, this one packs a punch. The museum is located on the University of Minnesota campus. But it wasn’t difficult getting there at all....More
Loved the building- views from a variety of places. Go up to the top floor and look out at the surrounding area from above. The collection is fascinating and spend time viewing the ceramics collection.

I too agree with everyone... one hour is sufficient amount of time. But make sure to visit the gift shop... it was a good one!

We will visit the Minneapolis from July 19-22, we are planning to spend two days for Minneapolis Institute of Arts, Weisman Art Museum and Mill City Museum. And another two days for Mall of America, Lego Imagine Center and other windows shopping. Consider the traffic, special events, any tip on whether I should visit the museum in weekend or weekdays? We may extend the trip by 1-2 days, any other good suggestion in the Twin City? thanks
