  • Amazing selection of modern art. Beautiful views of the city. Sculpture garden is perfect for everyone: family, kids, dates. A new restaurant opening in the fall of 2016 is supposed to be good, with sight lines to Spoon and Cherry sculpture. They also have music/theater/dance performances and film on a regular basis.
  • A beautiful museum with intriguing art! While I don't always enjoy some of the more modern art forms, Walker has enough of a variety that I was never bored. Their minigolf is very fun and different (in a good way) and a great restaurant and break spot sit right next door! I highly recommend stopping by the golf before your tee time.
  • Very interesting contemporary/modern art. Cafe serves great food. The minigolf on the roof is definitely worth the extra several dollars.
  • Always interesting to see what new things they have at the exhibits. Clean, helpful staff, nice gift shop. Good signage makes it hard to get lost.
  • Really like the facade of this modernist piece of architecture. Unfortunately there was much construction with chain link fences all over and the sculpture garden under renovation. I'll need to come back. Interesting programs offered as well.
