An amazing museum. I spent two hours there and still didn't see everything. It's a very relaxing, quiet place with lots of things to see. They have everything from ancient Greek/Roman statues to modern American paintings. Definitely would go back given the chance.
Visiting from Georgia and saw this on things to do in Minneapolis website. Hands down fantastic experience - great location, free and great parking. Not to mention their absolutely SPECTACULAR collection. Something for everyone. Impressed and will say SCAD has nothing on MIA. Wish more municipalities would invest in the arts like this and make it accessible to all. Well done Minneapolis!
