Visit

I had no idea that this museum would be so absolutely lovely.

I could spend every day exploring the MIA and go to bed happy.

It's free. Free!!! Let me say that in a singsongy voice to emphasize my point: Free, free, free, la dee da dee da da!

A great educational break from the Minnesota heat.

My boyfriend and I fell in love with the art and atmosphere.

A wonderful monument to accessible art representing diverse cultures and spanning many ages.

The museum is open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. today.
