May kicks off the second annual Minnesota Museums Month—31 days that celebrate the nearly 600 museums, historic and science centers, and zoos located throughout the state. For International Museum Day on May 18, the Walker offers all visitors a taste of membership, including free gallery admission and discounts in the Walker Shop and restaurants. Come for a visit and be a part of a worldwide celebration of cultural exchange. In 2012, 32,000 museums from 129 countries on five continents participated in the event.
Happy Thanksgiving! The galleries and shop are closed Thursday, November 27 and will reopen on Friday.
