Interested in art? Some of the finest art and design museums in the country can be found in the Twin Cities. There are outstanding collections in newly expanded, or about to be expanded, museums by such internationally recognized architects as Jacques Herzog and Pierre de Meuron (Walker Art Center), Frank Gehry (Weisman Museum), and Michael Graves (Minneapolis Institute of the Arts). And don’t forget all of the Twin Cities art galleries.
The Minneapolis Institute of Arts has a world-renowned collection of Asian art, representing 17 Asian cultures and spanning nearly 5,000 years.
