Walker Arts Center & Minneapolis Sculpture Garden

Minneapolis, MN, 55403, United States
TEL: (612) 375-7600

Since the Walker’s new addition opened in 2005, it has become just as well known for its eye-catching architecture as for the art inside. Designed by Swiss architects Herzog & de Meuron, the striking building, with its asymmetrical windows and shimmering aluminum mesh façade, houses plenty of light-filled space, 20.21 Restaurant and Bar by Wolfgang Puck, a cinema, and a 385-seat theater for innovative dance, music, and theater performances. Still, it’s the rotating art exhibitions and contemporary permanent collections, such as video art by Bruce Nauman and sculptures by Donald Judd, that continue to win the most accolades. Stop at the adjacent 11-acre sculpture garden too, where the whimsical Spoonbridge and Cherry sculpture is set dramatically against the downtown backdrop.


Tip: Admission is free every Thursday from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. and all day the first Saturday of each month.
