Fantastic small, free, museum on the campus of the University of Minnesota. Easy parking in ramp below. Enjoy the collection inside, along with the great gift shop and then walk across the upper pedestrian bridge outside and view the building from above the river.

This is a beautiful museum. I visited over the weekend, and was fortunate to join a public tour. Our tour guide was fabulous. Take some time to enjoy the beautiful campus.
