A Children’s Theatre is also connected, with shows at various times especially for children. I believe there is still a “Third Thursday” evening event including a different theme every month, with appropriate food and beverages the children may enjoy, with adult beverages for sale as well. Happy touring!

Q:
I just bought a metal goat attached to a wooden base. On the bottom of it a label says that it was an authentic replica of an original from your institute. Can you tell me anything about the original piece? I bought it at an antique mall in Kent, Ohio. I payed $12.50 for it. I love goat related items as I raised goats for many years.
A:
Maybe post this question via the "Contact Us" page on the MIA website.
Q:
Is there an app that one can use while at Mia that describes the art?
A:
Yes there is. They even have some special art to touch for the visually impaired.
Q:
New to the cities...live in Woodbury. Using public transportation, how would I get to the MIA? Thank you for your prompt reply.

Sorry, not sure how to quickly get there from Woodbury. If you get to downtown Mpls you can take the Nicollet Avenue bus and get off on 24th and head a few blocks east.
Q:
How far is this museum from Mill City Museum?
A:
Only a few miles, about 10 minute drive in light traffic.
