North Dakota Museum of Art & Cafe
This museum is a virtually undiscovered and not very well publicized, but proves to be a nice little touch of culture in a town where such opportunities are few and far between. There doesn’t seem to be a very large collection of art here, but instead, the museum specializes in touring exhibitions. The museum’s small size is an advantage rather than a liability, as an hour or so is sufficient to take a leisurely, thoughtful look at all of the works. Make sure you visit the Café as part of your visit – its bistro style is like nothing you’ll see in the area.

Getting your bearings...
The Greater Grand Forks Convention & Visitors Bureau is a great place to start your visit they offer a good one-page map of the surrounding area, which is the only one I use. The visitor center itself also has information about the 1997 flood including photos of the devastation.
If you never thought anything of Hockey, like me, wait to you come here, where Hockey is life. I was near UND. I saw the match between Boston and UND and then the rematch a year later on TV. What can I say. I was actually fixated to the TV and it was a sports game, and not Susan Lucci (who I found out, is oddly the daughter of Phyllis Dyller. Shocking, I know).
In training season, they do free games.
