Minneapolis Institute of Art - MIA @artsmia #travel #vacation

We went to Minneapolis Institute of Art - MIA twice. Yep you read that right.

Two Times = Two Posts

This is the first post. You can see the other post here when it's live.

Walker Art Center wins the award for best sculpture garden, but MIA wins the best award for an art museum. Hands down we enjoyed this one so much!



Some exhibits require tickets. We got to go to one of their special exhibits! I'll share that in this post.


Monday: Closed
Tuesday: 10am – 5pm
Wednesday: 10am – 5pm
Thursday: 10am – 9pm
Friday: 10am – 9pm
Saturday: 10am – 5pm
Sunday: 11am – 5pm

A lot of museums are closed on Mondays in Minneapolis. Joslyn Art Museum here in Omaha, Nebraska is also closed on Mondays. Possibly it's a thing to be closed on Mondays. Just take note of that if you do travel places. I'd hate for you to get to a place thinking you're going to visit all kinds of museums, only to find out they are all closed.

We had no problem finding parking.

This museum looks fairly small when we walked into it. Then we went upstairs, and it just seemed to get bigger and bigger!

We had already been to Walker Art Center that day. I think the boys were getting tired of walking. We mostly stayed in one section, and then looked at a lot more more the second time we went. Their collection is large!

I don't have titles, dates or names of pieces. I was on vacation, so I just wanted to absorb the art.

The whole section of art we walked through was very peaceful. I remember when I was going to have nose surgery, I bought a lot of elephant stuff. Elephants represent peace in a lot of cultures. I figured I could use lots of peace.

It's interesting to see the masks. I'm always curious about the history behind them.

That's so nice that they don't charge for entrance. I think art should be enjoyed by all, but some museums charge outrages fees just to walk in the door. The masks are really cool!

I love the masks. I have my own collection of masks as well, mostly from places we have visited before. Some of these masks are from Asia, my continent :)
