I was looking for Art Museums, and I looked under Museums, I think it was, wondering why there were so few. Then I found the separate listing. It's not always easy, here or in supermarkets, to think like the guys who put the book together. The directions were accurate, and the descriptions good. The Minnesota Museum of American Art has closed since this book came out and is looking for a new venue. That's not Berger's fault, though by the previous July (it closed 1/09) I'd have thought people knew. We were all set to go until I called and went online (not believing "closed" meant totally closed, as in forever) trying to find what kind of restaurants they had. Luckily, we found the Minn. History Center. A better map would have shown how very close that center is to the Cathedral and to the James Hill House, almost across the street from the Cathedral in St. Paul, and also how close the C.W Frost restaurant, in a historic landmark building, is to all, one block down the street from the Cathedral the other way.
