Minneapolis Institute of Arts

I spent the afternoon wandering around the Minneapolis Institute of Arts, a beautiful museum just south of downtown Minneapolis. They have almost 100,000 pieces from around the world and the admission is free. (Though I did throw $1 into the donation box.) If you're doing the tourist thing around the Twin Cities, it's a fantastic place to visit.

I'm not good enough at panorama mode to fit in the whole building.

Can't be a prude when viewing this sculpture.
I cringed a little.

I've been to this place when I visited my cousin in Rosemount. I wish I could have seen the twin rivers.

There's never enough time to see everything you want to see. In any city or town. :)

I've lived in Minnesota all my life, yet I've never been there. I might have to rectify that sometime. It looks like a beautiful place, your pics are stunning.
