Find a Cool Museum Nearby

The Minneapolis metropolitan area has 55 museums in total, so you can stay busy from your first visit to your tenth (or beyond!). From electricity to Russian art, our museums will expand your horizons.

Minneapolis is just under 150 years old, but there are thousands of years of history and art between the banks of the Mississippi and the lakes on the western edge of the city. You'll find those in our numerous museums, ranging from the "most explosive museum in the world," (Mill City Museum) carved out of the ruins of what was once the world's largest flour mill to some of the top ranked art museums in the U.S. and the world, designed by the likes of Herzog & de Meuron, Frank Gehry and Michael Graves.
