Visited today and brought our kids (3&6). Everything went well. They had a fun scavenger hunt worksheet for the kids which made the visit more fun for everyone!

Its free, lots to see, and do. When I say lots to see, a simple 3 hours will not do it justice. They have lots of exhibits. Some are rotating in all the time. Great thing to do for MN.

Excellent facility with very helpful staff. It is an interesting place where everything is free to see except the special exhibits. The Martin Luther exhibition is well worth the visit.

We were surprised by the extensive collection from all over the world. Didn't expect to find that in Minnesota! The Martin Luther exhibit was very well done, too bad it is a temporary display.

This is a busy place, so be prepared for a crowd. We parked in an outdoor, uncovered parking lot across the street from Mia. It was so cold, that the machine we had to use to secure a ticket to park, would not work. We pressed the help button on the machine, and a Mia staff member helped us a... More

Went to see the Luther exhibit. Purposefully didn't try to learn the details too much ahead of time; it was very well done. And as always, the overall museum has a great offering.
