Visitor Information


North Dakota Museum of Art
261 Centennial Drive Stop 7305
Grand Forks, North Dakota 58202 USA



The North Dakota Museum of Art is located on University of North Dakota's campus. You may approach the campus from either the east or west on University Avenue. Turn south off of University Avenue onto Centennial Drive, a one-way street. Continue to the stop sign and follow the curve of the road. Take a left into a metered parking lot. The Museum is behind the metered lot. The Museum is located in the former UND women's gymnasium.

Two special features will help you identify the Museum: a glass and limestone entrance graces the north side of the 1907 red brick building, and the Museum is surrounded by a circle of twenty granite stones that set the building apart from its neighbors.
