My wife and I enjoyed our recent visit to the Minneapolis Institute of Arts very much. We were struck by the museum's size and the breadth of the art on exhibit. It ranged from Asian to European and American with contemporary art and photography. The most interesting aspect of the museum were the reconstructed rooms from the Elizabethan era and 1900's American homes.
Although there were works by well-known artists like Renoir, Van Gogh and Sargent, they were understandably lesser works since the major pieces are in national galleries such as the Rijksmusuem, the Louvre, and the British National Gallery.
You need to allow yourself at least 3 hours to give the museum justice, but we recommend it!
