About Minneapolis Institute Of Arts, Minneapolis

This is a government funded art museum that is spread over a large area of around 8 acres. The place was earlier known as Morrison Park. The Park Board Museum Fund is the main sponsor of this museum. Apart from them the corporate bodies and museum members are other supporters in the treasury.

The museum was an initiative of well to do business men who wanted to bring the colors of art into the lives of the citizens. The exhibitions and collections were permanently started first in the Minneapolis Public library in 1889 and then the place changed to the present location.

  • The collection consists of around 80000 exhibits that date back to several centuries.
  • Apart from just the paintings, photographs, prints and drawings, they also have displays of textiles, architecture and decorative arts. All these are examples of world history.
  • There are collections of African Art, art from Oceania and Americas, Asian displays. The Asian collection here is considered one of the finest in the country. This section includes Chinese architecture, jades, bronzes and ceramics.
  • The museum also owns the Purcell- Cutts House just beside the Lake Isles. It is one of the finest as well as very few existing examples of typical Prairie architecture. It is opened for tours on the 2nd weekend of each month.

  • Wonderful place containing a wide variety of art. Staff are very friendly and professional without being obtrusive. 4 stars due to feeling incomplete - needs to attract more top level artwork from true masters such as painter Van Gogh - either as permanent pieces or visiting exhibits. Love the period rooms here! This art museum is very much worth visiting multiple times!

  • Amazing attraction and a must see for art lovers in the Minneapolis area. Truly expansive location filled to the brim with artworks for every corner of the world and different time periods. Lots of very unique exhibitions including a temporary living room exhibition and the special exhibitions are worth checking out as well. You can't go wrong spending a few hours here.

  • The institute is free. I have spent the better part of a day here without seeing it all. Certain exhibits cost money but that's an extremely small portion. Maps are provided upon entry free. I suggest taking one. It's easy to get turn turned around. The art changes so it is always a blast. There is a small childrens area too.

  • A museum to grow up with. This center of art and culture in Minneapolis is open to the public by donation, and they provide people off all agreed with access to art and history. From ancient Chinese ceramics to Prairie style architecture, MIA has a wide variety of exhibits so you are sure to find something you like. Their third floor is dedicated to classic western art and you will find masters like Monet and O'Keeffe hanging on their walls. Their special exhibits change 2-4 times per year, offering new exhibits to keep your visits fresh. Some of these exhibits have a ticket price associated with the procurement of the collection, but it is generally reasonable. MIA offers a wife selection here too that keeps people returning to the museum time and time again. I have seen collections of clothing and art from European nobility one month and Japanese pop art the next. Parents, it is worth checking if they have any children's exhibits at the time if your visit.

  • This is a nice art museum with a lot to see. I only had a couple of hours here but I wish I had had more time. I was really impressed as I didn't even know Minneapolis had good art museums. And it's free admission!
