  • Amazing experience. Beautiful mansion with easy access to all areas by stair or elevator. Top floor has an awesome space for kids. The food was also spectacular. A great day trip for anyone interested.
  • Had a wonderful experience visiting the Swedish Institute. We stopped (unplanned) and found the price of the museum reasonable and the staff friendly/knowledgeable. We just missed the start of a guided tour so the docent provided us with ample information for our visit. At the end we noticed the restaurant, we didn't eat, but the food smelled and looked wonderful.
  • This was the first time I had been there since the addition. The store and the cafe are great! The house has lost its charm though, with the art gallery displays and the lack of cool information about the house. It was neat to have more parts of the house open though.
  • Great fun looking at an art display set up in the only castle in the twin cities. There is so much to do, anyone could come and have a good time. Great food, cute gift shop with the best socks.
  • Awesome place with great staff. Stop in to view the art. Return for all the events they offer -- check the calendar they have! A secret gem in Uptown.

Where to stay in Minneapolis

To stay in the thick of tourist action, choose a hotel in downtown Minneapolis. This area offers many independent and chain hotels, with rooms that range from budget-friendly to high-end. You can also stay close to the area by exploring mid-range hotels just a few blocks from downtown that are set in quieter neighborhoods with fewer tourists. If you have access to a car and don't mind driving to most major attractions, you can consider a good value motel or inn just outside the city.
