Winter Arts and Culture Itinerary


We wouldn't be giving you the true Minneapolis/Minnesota experience if your hotel didn't have a splash of our culture. Wake up at the Hilton Minneapolis and have some brain food for breakfast to prepare for the intellectual day you’re in store for. The Hilton is right in the heart of downtown, so you'll be able to walk everywhere you need to go.



Ya. You’re a pro when it comes to navigating downtown Minneapolis. Time for you to head across Loring Park to the Walker Art Museum, internationally recognized as a leading arts venue, for some artistic inspiration. The Walker Art Center presents contemporary visual arts and design exhibitions; dance, theater, and music performances and film screenings.



While you are there enjoy lunch at Gather by D'Amico Locally sourced and globally inspired American cuisine, featuring casual lunch and a Thursday night bar scene with a new small plate menu every month.



You spent the morning exploring Minneapolis’ history, so now it’s time to head to the Minnesota Science Musuem. The Minnesota Science museum is quite possibly the Mecca of hands-on activities in all of Minnesota. There are always exhibits like Butterfly House and Future Earth that come through the museum, as well as their regular mainstays like the Cell Lab and Experiment Gallery. Make tornadoes, grow cells, make music and a whole lot more when you visit the Science Museum of Minnesota.



You've had a, dare we say it, classy time out and about Minneapolis. When you sit down for dinner, you should feel that exact level of classiness (sans top hat and monocle). That's why you need to bring out your fanciest clothes and make reservations to Murray's. The decor, the service, the food, EVERYTHING has the aura and feel of a prestine and prestigious restaurant. They've been a staple of downtown Minneapolis since 1946, so you know they've had some time to make everything perfect for your culinary experience.



It’s theater season in Minneapolis, and this is your opportunity to see a show in a city that’s only second to New York City in terms of theater seats per capita.  Whether it’s a broadway hit at the Orpheum Theatre, dinner and a show at the Chanhassen Dinner Theatre, a timeless classic at the Guthrie Theater or an improv show at the Brave New Workshop, your trip to Minneapolis this season isn’t complete without a trip to the theater.
