area visitor information

Walker Art Center's Sculpture Garden: Spoonbridge and Cherry Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport (MSP) is not part of any city but is nestled among several. The airport is surrounded by Minneapolis, St. Paul, and the suburban cities of Bloomington, Eagan, Mendota Heights and Richfield. Because of this central location, you aren't far from anywhere in the metro community when you land at MSP.

A light-rail system connects the airport to Mall of America as well as to downtown Minneapolis, St. Paul, and several other locations. Buses, taxis and shuttles are also available for ground transportation.

Speaking of Minneapolis, check out the sites in two of America's premier cities while you're here. Take in a play at the famous Guthrie Theatre, State Theatre, Orpheum Theatre or Children's Theatre. See fine art at the Minneapolis Institute of Arts or the Walker Art Center. Check out the great shops and restaurants along Hennepin Avenue. Or cheer the feats of the Minnesota Timberwolves, Lynx, Twins or Vikings.

Don't stop there. Minnesota's capital city, St. Paul, offers its own treasures for residents and visitors alike. Take the family to Como Zoo, the Minnesota Children's Museum, or the Science Museum of Minnesota. See the Minnesota Wild take to the ice. Cruise the Mississippi on a paddleboat. Experience live performances at the Ordway Center for the Performing Arts or any of the city's other renowned theaters.
