When MOA is having a special exhibition, call and ask if they have scheduled docent-led tours. We got much more out of a recent exhibit when we went with the docent.

Best kept secret is that MIA has a world-class Asian art collection -- people come here to see it but locals don't even know about it.

If you can avoid going on a Thursday night, you will have more one on one time with your favorite pieces.

The main museum is free, so leave some extra time to wonder around after visiting Mattisse. You will not get through the whole museum in one day so pick a few exhibits you want to see and plan to come back another day. It's a beautiful place with so many wonderful pieces on display, so coming back will not be hard to do.

From Our Editors

When the Minneapolis Institute of Arts first opened its doors in 1915, it was the product of several decades of arts advocacy. A group of 25 citizens formed the Minneapolis Society of Fine Arts in 1883 with the goal of giving their community access to creative arts. More than a century later, this commitment to the community has taken the permanent collections from 800 works to close to 80,000 objects and has made the museum Minnesota's largest art educator.

The collections, divided into seven curatorial areas, encompass a period of 5,000 years and hail from every corner of the world. The Asian Art collection represents 17 different Asian cultures, and Arts of Africa and the Americas holds more than 3,000 pieces of sculpture, basketry, painting, and beadwork. Temporary exhibitions bring collections of artwork from other institutions. The museum's interactive learning stations supplement understanding of topics such as modernism or 17th-century European painting with animation, video, and audio recordings.
