About the Minnesota Museum of American Art

The M was founded as the St. Paul School of Fine Arts in 1894, and formally incorporated in 1927, when it began collecting works of art for instructional purposes. From the 1950s on, under the name Saint Paul Art Center, it pursued an avid program of exhibitions—including biennials of drawings, craft, and contemporary art—and assembled an esteemed collection of paintings, work on paper, sculpture, and craft. After closing for rebuilding, The M re-opened in December of 2018 in its expanded new space.

Family Fun at The M

The M had intended to expand its family-friendly offerings after expanding into its new space. We hope to see more Family Days after they reopen in 2021. Among activities to look forward to upon the reopening of the physical space, look for:

  • Artist-led summer youth workshops
  • Regularly scheduled Family Days with interactive experiences for kids of all ages.
  • Free Flash Talks | Free and open to the public • Ten to fifteen minute chats about the offerings at the M. Nice for when you want to keep your museum visits short and sweet for your little ones but still want some grown up interaction.
  • Free Curator Tours on select dates. Look for these free tours on our calendar.
