Program #19681RJ
6 Days | 5 Nights
ACTIVITY LEVEL: Active
Road Scholar has thousands of educational adventures to choose from. A good way to narrow down our list is to browse our collection of "Most Popular" programs.
See all of our Most Popular programs.
EasyFor people looking to exercise their minds more than their bodies. There’s minimal walking and not too many stairs.
ModerateThese programs get you on your feet and include activities such as walking up to a mile in a day through a city and standing in a museum for a few hours.
ActiveFor people who enjoy walking as much as two miles a day, perhaps to explore historic neighborhoods or a nature trail.
Moderately ChallengingFor hardy explorers who enjoy a good physical challenge, spending most of their days on the go.
ChallengingGet ready to keep up with our highest-energy group. These demanding — and rewarding — programs are for seasoned outdoor enthusiasts.

I think nearly everyone in the group had never been to Minneapolis and found many surprising things and a lovely city.

A very interesting well planned program. The Group Leader was excellent, educational opportunities were very good. Accommodations and meals were very good. Don't pass this one up.

The study of Minneapolis was most i formative and stimulating. Our program director was of the same excellent caliber of all of the others I have had with RS. Barbara Meyer did everything to make this an especially memorable experience for us all.

The program in Minneapolis is truly worthwhile. If one is at all interested in art, architecture, and the performing arts, this trip should not be missed. The food is pretty good too.

Minneapolis is a very progressive city, and this program provided a comprehensive view of the art sector there. I thoroughly enjoyed all aspects of the tour and would highly recommend it!

This was an outstanding program! We were fortunate to have an excellent group leader. Minneapolis is a wonderful city and we got a great introduction to it. My friends and I spent a couple of days exploring St. Paul after the program. If you sign up for the Minneapolis program, you might want to consider adding on the St. Paul one also.

If the city of Minneapolis has appeal, this is the city for you! You will be amazed and delighted as I was to visit and partake of this 'jewel in the crown' of our Midwest!!! From theater to museums to wonderful music -- Minneapolis has it all!!

Well, Barb could not have been a better leader -- even through the rain. What a splendid trip: the Guthrie was a highlight as was the visit to St Paul which was sumptuous. Nice people and very fine trip. Gloria

The Twin Cities of Minneapolis and St. Paul have many cultural opportunities which this program explored. Nationally the Cities are ranked very high and this was a chance to see them at their best.

This was the first "Signature City" program I attended and it definitely sparked my interest in attending others. I had never visited the Twin Cities and didn't realize what gems they are! I highly recommend this program. LK

Minneapolis: Art, Architecture, Theatre and Music is a wonderful Road Scholar Program for anyone who enjoys the arts and a beautiful city. The lecturers, leaders and presenters all shared their love of Minneapolis and made the trip interesting, informative, exciting and charming too. Everyone in our group had a great time!
