Things to Do in Minneapolis
So what’s there to do in Minneapolis? Here are several ideas to get you started.
Appreciate the Arts at the Walker Art Museum
Minneapolis is home to multiple art museums worthy of a dedicated afternoon or evening. Start with the Walker Art Museum, one of the top five most-visited modern/contemporary art museums in the United States.
Wander through the expansive gallery to take in nearly 12,000 works from its permanent collection, plus revolving exhibitions. Admission on the first Saturday of every month is free.
Cheer for the Home Team
Our professional sports venues offer a fun night for both die-hard and casual sports fans. The Minnesota Vikings stadium—U.S. Bank Stadium—provides an electric atmosphere with a transparent roof that makes you feel like you’re outside, without the frozen temperatures.
About one mile from the Minnesota Vikings stadium, you can catch a basketball game or concert at Target Center or belt out “Take Me Out to the Ballgame” at Target Field.
Explore Minneapolis (Inside)
Enjoying Minneapolis doesn’t have to be dictated by the weather. The sprawling Minneapolis skyway system crisscrosses the city, covering around eight miles or 80 city blocks.
Enter the skyway off Nicollet Mall, the pedestrian-centered corridor home to renowned restaurants, shops, and activities. The skyway system serves as the gateway to visit Orchestra Hall or the Dakota Jazz Club.
Head to a Minneapolis Theater
The Minneapolis theater scene is diverse and thriving, primarily because of the internationally-recognized Guthrie Theater. Before you take in a show at this historic Minneapolis theater, you can enjoy dinner at one of the four restaurants or witness the impressive St. Anthony Falls from the scenic lookout.
Want to venture off the beaten path? Check out Mixed Blood Theater for a live show or the 1950s-era Riverview Theater for a movie and popcorn.
Sip a Brew and Show Off Your Smarts
Ask any local about Minneapolis; you’re bound to hear a list of top breweries to visit. Over 180 craft breweries are in Minnesota, 30 of which call Minneapolis home. Enjoy an IPA or porter while testing your knowledge during bar trivia, a popular Minneapolis activity.
Many breweries and distilleries host trivia regularly, making it an exhilarating evening for you and a group of competitive friends.
