Art and Architecture – Minneapolis/St. Paul MN & Bloomington MN
Architecture in Minnesota is beautiful and distinct. You can see this firsthand when you tour architectural masterpieces, such as the Minnesota State Capitol and Irene Hixon Whitney Bridge.
The Minnesota State Capitol is one of the most visited sites featuring the largest unsupported marble dome in the world and a regal interior. This landmark is located in St. Paul, MN, and is open to visitors year round.
The Irene Hixon Whitney Bridge is a whimsical bridge with supporting arches and an enclosed walking space. Enjoy the bridge’s pastel colors of blue and yellow as well as the poetry written across the walk way. This architectural gem crosses 16 lanes of traffic between downtown, Loring Park and the Lowry Hill neighborhood.
