WALKER ART CENTER
Considered one of the nation's best contemporary art museums, the Walker Art Center boasts an impressive collection of art and cultural events.
From the stunning outdoor collection and onsite award-winning dining, to the state-of-the-art cinema and theater, the Walker Art Center in Minneapolis offers an all-encompassing cultural experience. Featuring a number of cutting edge exhibitions alongside a vast permanent collection of modern pieces crafted from both two- and three-dimensional media, the museum is a contemporary art hub. Said to be “possibly the best contemporary art museum in the U.S.” by Newsweek and considered one of the nation’s “big five” museums for modern art, the Walker’s collection focuses on performing and visual arts, showcasing more than 11,000 works.
On warm summer and breezy fall days, head to the museum’s adjacent Minneapolis Sculpture Garden, where larger figures such as “Spoonbridge and Cherry” have garnered national attention. The sculpture garden recently reopened in June 2017, so while they've kept all-time favorites, there are a host of new art pieces to explore on the 10-plus acre lot.
