Even if you don't go inside, at least make your way downtown to see this incredible architecture. The Weisman is located on the U of M campus right in the heart of Minneapolis. I haven't been inside in a long time, so I don't know how the exhibits are now, but just looking from the outside is enough to be in awe. The building is one huge piece of art that any traveler should see.

A work of art that houses equally beautiful works of art. Bonus if you're a student at the U, it's free to visit and a good stress reliever to visit between classes.

Ok, I haven't been in this museum since I was in high school, so I can make no comment on the content at this point. BUT you MUST see the exterior of this building! It was Frank Gehry's original concept. Walt Disney Hall and the Music Hall at Bard College are similar to this building in aesthetic, but the Minneapolis one is by far my favorite in comparison. It looks like a "Steam Punk" castle over looking the Mississippi River. Remember the bike trail I mentioned that is one block behind the opera? Well, just keep going past Frank Gehry's Guthrie Theater and look across the river and you'll see it! Your kids may enjoy a visit just because it looks so cool!
