⚠️ WAM is temporarily closed for maintenance. ⚠️

The University of Minnesota’s Weisman Art Museum (WAM) is temporarily closing its galleries and in-person shopping at the WAM Shop to allow for maintenance inside the building over the summer and fall. Find out more about this temporary closure of the Weisman’s building on the WAM blog. 

The Weisman’s galleries and WAM Shop will reopen to visitors on January 19, 2022.

In the meantime, visitors are encouraged to take advantage of the free audio tours available on the museum’s CloudGuide app, which focus on the museum’s permanent collection works and WAM’s public art on campus.

Visitors will continue to have access to virtual visits, events, and online resources, as well as outdoor programs and public art throughout the University of Minnesota’s Twin Cities campus. WAM Shop operations will shift to the museum’s new online store while the building is closed to the public.

Getting Here


Parking is available under the museum. University rates for parking ramps are $3 an hour and a $13 daily maximum.

Public Transportation

Metro Transit buses and the Green Line train frequently run through campus. For your best route, visit Metro Transit Trip Planner.


There is no food available for purchase inside the museum. You can find a variety of restaurants in the surrounding areas at Coffman Memorial Union, Washington Ave, and Dinkytown.

Now’s a great time to make a gift in support of the Weisman’s work to keep its exhibitions and programs accessible and freely available in these extraordinary times.
