Walker Art Center - Review

It is a multidisciplinary contemporary art museum that was the first of its kind in the Mid- West. It is also rated among the top 5 museums of the country. The museum was first set up as a private gallery of lumberman Thomas Barlow Walker in 1879 and then opened as a public museum in 1927. The renovated version of the museum is much better and includes a new gallery space, a theatre, restaurant, shop, a special event space, etc. the Cowles Conservatory is another remarkable part of the museum.

As you explore the museum you will find:

  • The Visual Arts Program that is a mix of contemporary, historical, group, monographic, thematic, and media-specific shows.
  • The Performing Arts Center that presents local arts, dance, music and poetry events.
  • There is an in- house design department here.
  • They organize very good educational and informative workshops and programs for everyone.

Walker Art Center, Minneapolis Reviews

  • Really beautiful interesting sculptures. Great on a weekday when there aren't as many people around. Loved that some pieces are interactive and meant to be touched. Would love to find a time when it's empty, but I suppose that's rare. Gorgeous view of the Basilica and Downtown. Perfect for families, friends, or livers.

  • Definitely check this out if you haven't yet or if you are visiting. Inside, it has a great collection of art that rotates in and out. The new collections are fun to see. Outside the Walker is my favorite. It's a sculpture garden with many things to see. I have been here countless times and will go again. The staff is knowledgeable and friendly. They are protective of art (naturally), so children are welcomed but must be watched so they don't touch the art or past the lines near the art. We brought our kids here since they were little. They do have special events for families and children, which we really appreciate.

  • It's modern art. The best collection in MN but still hit or miss. If you go, go when an exhibit that you are interested in is showing or you may be bored to tears. The expansion is nice - it is silly that is doesn't connect to the existing exhibit space above the first floor. They should have kept the old Guthrie as a performance space and built their parking garage around/behind/underneath it. The best parts of Walker are the sculpture garden (newly remodeled) and the gift shop. I have been to 2 weddings on the outdoor terrace. Both weddings were hot and there was no shade. The area was 5-10 degrees hotter than ambient temp due to the concrete. The wedding party had to wear sunglasses during the ceremony and the grandmother of the groom had to be inside. At the second wedding one of the Walker's catering employees stole the wedding cards and phones, cc, and cash from the wedding party storage room.

  • Minneapolis needs a good center for Modern Art. They don't do quite as well reflecting the tremendous local talent with international roots here, and often step on a metaphorical rake with few exhibits in recent years that have fundamentally challenged our ideas of what Modern Art can be. Recent exhibits have felt more like a giant put-on daring the audience to call them out. But the nearby sculpture garden is a classic stop for first-time visitors to the Twin Cities thanks to the giant cherry.

  • This is a modern art museum and sculpture garden. It is a fun place to visit if you like modern art. They also have events you can take part in and enjoy constantly. Great interactive museum.
