  • The Walker Art Center is a beautiful museum filled with world-class pieces and attached to the Guthrie theater. You could easily spend a day walking through here in a very relaxed setting enjoying yourself. They also have a great restaurant in the building so you truly can make a day of it. When you go here, don’t forget the step outside and enjoy many hours in the beautiful adjacent sculpture garden.

  • Very cool art center. I mostly enjoyed the sculpture garden. It did broadcast an incredible array of artists from around the world but I do wish they had a few more local spots from the great people of Minneapolis. Highlighting local in a town that artistic would be awesome!

  • The Walker is a really unique building and usually has some decent exhibitions. When the weather is nice the sculpture garden is a great place to read a book or take a walk. I do wish they would get some of the bigger exhibitions from the Whitney but overall Minneapolis is lucky to have the Walker.

  • Beautiful place. Some very good exhibits going on last week. Wish I'd planned better for a free day. A tad pricey to get in.

  • If you like looking at wild and outside the box art, the Walker Art Center is perfect. A great mix of modern art and sculptures. Plan extra time to wander around the sculpture garden and grab a selfie by the iconic Spoon Bridge and Cherry.
