    My better half (and me to some extent) have always been fascinated by Japanese textiles. This is a tremendous exhibition showcasing rare & truly exceptional examples of clothing, ceremonial robes, carpets, rugs etc, made during the last 250 years or so. Knowledgeable staff, Spotless facility.

    Super cool! Whole family enjoyed this. The sculptures were very unique and you have several photo opportunities. Parking was only $4 and right there next to garden.

    Had a real nice time at Target Field on my first visit in June of this year. Drove from Iowa with a longtime friend, got GREAT seats in the shade behind home plate. Restrooms were abundant, as were the varieties of food. Of course, I chose a footlong. We chose to park at Mall of America and take the train in. CHEAP. Drops ya right of at the ballpark.

    I'm the Rays fan in the pic, if only they would have won...

    It’s not too hard to find. It’s closer to the beginning of the park. We parked on the street without an issue. You can view falls easily from above. We went down to the little foot bridge thinking we’d get a better view. TOO many people hang out down there as close to the falls as they can get, trees & bushes are covered in weeds and limits the view. Steps are in need of repairs as many are broken or missing sections and need an overall cleaning. 65 steps down & 65 up for nothing.

    Casually, we didn't expect too much when planning to visit Mill City Museum. But we were blown away by the details of the exhibits and the access given to parts of the building. I could've spent hours sitting on the observation deck relaxing with a book--as the view was incredible and peaceful.

    Excellent place to bike, walk, sail, kayak, paddleboard, swim and enjoy all the beauty that is Minneapolis. Great place for people watching, local wildlife, getting a snack and reconnecting with nature!

    We had a nice walk around Lake Harriet - a short walk as one of our party had limited mobility but it was flat and had easy paths with a lot of shade. We saw families swimming in the lake and there are also paddle boards/canoes to hire. And a cafe which is ok for a snack and drink.

    What an amazing house! Full access to just about all areas was impressive. I'm not sure what the "institute" means - it should be advertised as an historic home tour. Also very little information on who built it and why. Seemed like a big missed opportunity to tell a story - it was just a process of walking through an amazing house without much context. Maybe it was there, but we didn't see it. I'm not sure I could care less about the "paper cutting" theme throughout, which just seemed to distract and create a disjointed theme. We had a great visit, but left confused about just what the mission or purpose of this place is.

    This was so convenient. We were at the conference center but had events at nearby hotels. We could get there without ever going outside. There are bridges connecting many, many buildings all around downtown.

    Unfortunately the 'Basilica of St. Mary' was closed when I visited one afternoon when exploring downtown Minneapolis, (it seems to only open in the mornings until 1pm). However I did get to have a good look around the Basilica's exterior. Built 1907-1914 this Basilica is significant as it was the first Basilica to be established in the USA.

    Good trip. We arrived at approximately 8 pm and made our way towards the trail surrounding the lake. There were multiple parking spots available around the circumference of the lake. We walked a portion of the trail, that had unobstructed views of the lake all around us. We also watched the sunset from the location as well.

    Tip: I recommend spending 30 minutes here (more if you want to walk the entire length of the trail)

    Beautiful lake, good walking and biking trails. Extra fun to see the large fancy houses nearby. If you’re in the city and need some green space, it is here!

    Recently,I returned to Minneapolis and I spent three hours enjoying the Museum of Russian Art.I saw fine paintings from the permanent collection by these 20th Century Russian Painters;Mikhailo Khmelko("Motherland Greets A Hero"),Stanislaus Kreiz("On Native Shores"),Akhmed Kitaev("Among The Birch Trees"),Dmitri Kantorov("Falling Icarus"),and Valery Yershov("Gorbachev").I enjoyed the paintings of these Russian painters realizing their creativity was somewhat suppressed.
    I saw impressive Contemporary Russian Art temporarily on display by Lenoid Sukov("Lenin and Giacometti"),Natalia Nesterova("Pastries"),and Ludmila Belova("Pastorale"),among others.
    There also was a fine exhibit of photography depicting Americans living and working in Siberia.
    in short,the Museum of Russian Art is a less discovered treasure in the Twin Cities.
