Thought Provoking and Compelling
Apr 2021 • Couples
A gem in a beautifully recovered space, thought provoking visual art by regional artists. Based in the geography and culture of the region. Was the primary reason for our trip and definitely worth it.

Art museum in Fargo, North Dakota
Jul 2020
The museum has free parking. Admission if free. There are donation boxes available if you are so inclined. The art is mostly modern. I was expecting it to house Native American art of which there was little. There is a gift shop and a restaurant. The restaurant was closed during my visit due to COVID-19 concerns.

I am not an art enthusiast but even for me this museum was excellent. Loved ‘The Other Four’ exhibition. It was incredible. Was not very crowded which was a shame. No admission fee. Gift shop was alright. Must try if you are in the area.

This is a well-cultivated museum celebrating local artists. I particularly enjoyed the student display of birdhouses following the stylistic ideals of Pritzker Prize-winning architects. Well-worth your time.

It is a small museum in a beautiful old building. The exhibits are fine, but limited. During my visit there was a bird house exhibit which was very interesting. As it is free, it is worth an hour to visit

Nothing Exceptional
Jun 2019 • Solo
A couple of galleries showcasing the art of the Native Americans was very interesting and also that of women artistes. Other than that, there was not much on display. However, the huge mural behind Reception is very striking. It is free.

interesting museum with a surprise
May 2018 • Solo
The museum is housed in a historic building. This history is told by a series of photographs inside the museum. The museum is not big, but it presents an interesting collection of modern art. When I visited there was a lunchtime concert, which added to the overall experience in the museum.
If possible, I would have rated the museum 4.5 out of 5.
