  • This place is a treasure that I didn't know about, a place where I will go again with friends. The exhibits are finely conceived and exquisitely executed. It took me to a different world. Only four stars due to lack of follow through.
  • Wonderful museum with knowledgeable curators. Their exhibits are extensive between the three levels with plenty of space. They also have a little gift shop as well. Not overly expensive either.
  • Good specialty museum, but note there isn't a ton of gallery space. Top gallery has an open area of floor, which IMHO prevents you from getting far enough back to really appreciate a lot of the paintings up there, or you have to go to the opposite side and view the, then you are often too far. Go to catch a special exhibit that you think you'd like rather than just go any old time and hope any special exhibits are good.
  • Great exhibits. A great learning experience about a country with so much history.
  • Wonderful museum. A pleasant experience. Loved the art...loved the building, both the interior and exterior.

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.
