"Best contemporary art center on Hennepin hands down."
"However, the Sculpture Garden is a nice place of serenity."
"Pay a bit more for the superlative Museum of Modern Art and the Guggenheim."

Typical dreck for the rusticants of Minnesota. Pay a bit more for the superlative Museum of Modern Art and the Guggenheim. Of course the fabulous Getty and Hrischorn are always free. There are so many other fine and smaller museums of modern art around the country that clearly outshine this architectural monstrosity of Minnesota chic. However, the Sculpture Garden is a nice place of serenity. The bushes offer a clandestine place to barf after being visually assaulted by the indoor collection and snarky "prison guards". So many of us in the arts fault Halbreich for her disastrous decision to turn down state funds for the expansion. That will continue to cripple the Walker for years to come and leave it as only a regional favorite.

Good permanent collection and they often have great exhibits. The ground are great for a stroll and mini golf, art style is always fun in the summer.

I'm a teenager and I have gone with my school and my family, most recently during the Van Gogh exhibit. My brother and I enjoyed it, he liked a bunch of old swords, guns, and armor and I liked the Van Gogh section because it reminded me of the Doctor Who episode "Vincent and The Doctor." Anyway, the time I went on a tour with my school it was not as fun because we were rushed through so I didn't have time to look at stuff. I also like to look at art alone because guides and friends are distracting so I didn't like that field trip much. Over all it is a great museum, I'll go back again for sure!

I don't get it! And why did you charge me full admission when half the place is closed for "reconstruction?"

Not a great experience with the staff members there. Upon entering, I was told that I could hold my backpack by my side by a staff member there. A second staff member approached me and asked me about my backpack, but told me I could keep it. A third staff member asked me about my backpack, and I told her two other staff members told me I could keep it. While talking to her, a FOURTH staff member came up and told me that this is "two misinformations" in a very aggressive tone, and told me I had to put it in a locker. She was very cold and rude. I understand a no-backpack policy, but please address this from the beginning or be more friendly when telling me I can't carry it. The staff intensely watches you as you look at the art - I'm there to enjoy art, not feel like a criminal.

There are lots of great walking areas and sites to see at this park in Minneapolis! The park is always clean, and it's not super busy most of the time. It's a very relaxing park to spend a few hours on a nice day.

The "main entrance" leads into a hall next to the bookstore. The museum is user unfriendly, with small directional signs posted on the walls. I met a friend for lunch, but the "cafe" serves no coffee or alcohol. The Sculpture Garden is one of my favorite Twin City places, but unless there is a very special exhibit, I wouldn't care to go back.

It's a nice museum with great collections, but it's a little small.
