Founded in 1934 as University Gallery, the museum was originally housed in an upper floor of the university's Northrop Auditorium. In 1993, the museum moved to its current building, designed by the Canadian-born American architect Frank Gehry, and renamed in honor of art collector and philanthropist Frederick R. Weisman. Widely known as a "modern art museum," its 20,000+ acquisitions include large collections of Marsden Hartley, Alfred Maurer, Charles Biederman, Native American Mimbres pottery, and traditional Korean furniture.By using our Minneapolis trip planning site, you can arrange your visit to Weisman Art Museum and other attractions in Minneapolis.
Weisman Art Museum reviews
Frank Gehry designed museum, adjacent o U of Minnesota campus. Contemporary art exhibits in an open and airy space- a visual treat, with the bonus of being able to visit the U of Minnesota campus...

This museum is free and has nice exhibitions but the absolute highlight is the building itself. It's a stunning work by the great Frank Gehry. Truly a magical creation.

Great museum. Small collection. The building itself however is beautifully constructed. Staff is mostly students who are super helpful! Do check it out
One of the best museums in the city. Wonderful exhibit at the moment. Helpful knowledgeable staff. Nice bike ride station right in front. Highly recommended.
