In the Spotlight
Minneapolis Saint Paul celebrates the arts, boasting beauty to behold across both cities. But don’t just take our word for it. In the past few years, our arts community and modern architecture caught the eyes of Newsweek, Travel + Leisure and an array of other national publications. Conde Nast Traveler dubbed us “the Midwest’s cultural capital.” You’ll find the beauty within matches the beauty of the architecture at many of our cultural must-sees, such as the Weisman Art Museum, Minneapolis Institute of Arts, Walker Art Center and Guthrie Theater.
Take it Outside
