    My visit to the Walker was one of the highlights of my recent trip to Minneapolis. After 5 hours in the museum, when I had exhausted my brother and I thought that I, too, was exhausted, we decided to play through the mini-golf course. It was delightful and had us both laughing and rejuvenated. Thank you for a unique experience!
