"Best contemporary art center on Hennepin hands down."
"I really enjoy the art work and sculptures that they have here."
"The sculpture garden outside is amazing, and there's no charge."

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.

This place is the best. Free on thursday afternoons and all day on the first Saturday of the month. As one of the best museums in the country, this place is a real gem for modern art. The garden is very chill in the summer as well. Go there now.

I saw multiple John Zorn shows here. Do I need more reason to give it 5 stars?

Great place, spoiled by lousy service at the restaurant bar. When you ask what wine they have, the barman throws a menu at you on the bar. Having served three others before finally returning and taking the order, he then pours a half full glass of wine for you. Why? Because he couldn't be bothered to open another (screw-top) bottle. Having queried why, he says, "Sorry, that's what you get" and walks off. $10 for half a glass? Having walked away to see others with full glasses, I returned and complained to his manager, who filled the glass. Hey, if you don't enjoy your job, get another one. Otherwise, a nice place, cool interior to the auditorium and another great Brits Award screening.

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!

Glad I went when it was free. There was some interesting stuff but not much that really got me that excited or looked really cool. If you don't understand "modern art" you will probably like the trinkets in the gift shop more than some of the exhibits.

The facilities here are very modern; unfortunately, so is the art. About halfway through the galleries I wanted my money back. In all, there were only 2 or 3 pieces in the entire museum that did anything for me. The adjoining sculpture garden was more of the same--the grounds were very nice, the sculptures very incomprehensible. Now if you like modern art then by all means pay these places a visit. If not, then stay very very very far away.

The Garden is awesome, but don't pay to go inside. The art is confusing and frustrating.
