Unfortunately there was only 1 exhibit downstairs and all by 1 artist. Tours suspended until exhibits are re-opened. I would have liked to see it all. :/ They only charged $5 b/c the small offerings. I liked a few of the artist's pieces. I am...More

Excellent opportunity to see samples of socialist realism art from the permanent collection and sometimes great exhibitions of Russian artifacts from private collections.

Excellent art museum. Not too big. Great for a 90 minute visit. I try to go once a year. Free street parking. Near Wise Acres Eatery, an excellent farm to table restaurant.

If you are looking for a small museum to visit in Minneapolis, the Russian Art Museum is a good bet. Rotating exhibits are small enough to devour in an hour and don't miss the lower level which usually has a different exhibit from the main...More

Yes. Especially if they like history. Check their website & go on the day/days they offer the free tour.
