The Minneapolis Institute of Art has over 90,000 works of art representing 5,000 years of world history. Its collection represents the world’s diverse cultures across six continents.

The Minneapolis Society of Fine Arts was established in 1883, and its  Beaux-Arts architecturally styled building opened in 1915.

Several additions have subsequently been built, and in 2015 the Institute rebranded itself to become the Minneapolis Institute of Art and has adopted the nickname, Mia.

The museum has seven curatorial areas:

  • Arts of Africa & the Americas
  • Contemporary Art
  • Decorative Arts, Textiles and Sculpture
  • Asian Art
  • Paintings
  • Photography and New Media
  • Prints and Drawings

The museum features a comprehensive collection of objects and features regular exhibitions from other museums for display. 

The Museum Library contains more than 60,000 volumes on art and art history.
