There's a lot to see in Minneapolis. So much, in fact, that if you're not looking for the public art you might miss it. Even though there are 300 art works scattered around town. 

But now there's a new place to look for the city's public art. It's a website that points you toward all the pieces of art and groups them geographically into six different tours. 

The city and the Parks and Recreation Board put together the Minneapolis Public Art Tours site. 

It gives you background information on each artwork, shows you a picture of what it looks like, and tells you where to find it. 

So now even if you don't know where all that public art is, you know where to find it. 

This story is part of our Best of the Web section – which is just cool stuff we find online and want to share with you.
