Today is the official Museum Day and we decided to spend our entire afternoon at the Minneapolis Institute of Arts (MIA). The MIA is dubbed “the home to one of the finest encyclopedic art collections in the country” and it houses more than 80,000 works of art representing 5,000 years of world history. It is also the largest museum in Minnesota and there is no general admission fee.
This 3-storey museum has many different art collections, from Asian art to modern sculpture to ancient art to contemporary art and many more. We spent ~4 hours there until the closing hour and barely covered 2 floors. We were allowed to photograph most of the artworks as long as they are not loaned or lent by other institutions/artists due to the copyright issue. We met up with Jenny/Andy at the museum and headed to the nearby Lake Harriet for an evening walk.
