Key Points

The Taube Museum of Art ...

has been a vital part of the overall Minot community for over 46 years!  What an accomplishment!  This is because we have such wonderful supporters within the Minot and surrounding area.  It has been built with love, perserverance and action...and it continues through you!


To encourage, sponsor and facilitate educational activities.  To actively involve the public in the production and appreciation of the arts.  To maintain artistic excellence, diversity and vitality.


We showcase guest artists and member's work, as well as maintain a permanent collection. Admission to the gallery is always free, but donations are greatly appreciated.

Museum Hours...

The museum is open from Tuesday through Friday 10:30 AM to 5:30 PM and on Saturday from 11:00 AM to 4:00 PM.


We are so thankful for Ms. Margi and the wonderful opportunities for children at the Taube! We started participating the Start in Art Program three years ago, enjoyed Summer Classes/Art Camp, and are now having fun at Good Night Art. I can honestly say that what we have gained is much more than an just an appreciation for Art. Our eldest is happy with the creative, low-pressure, encouraging, and fun environment. As the mom, I too have learned just as many things from the classes and Ms. Margi! We can't wait to start our youngest next Fall, participate in the summer opportunities, and continue to grow at Good Night Art. While we live 80 miles away, we make time at the Taube a priority on our list! Thanks to Ms. Margi and the Taube staff for providing great opportunities for the children of the area.

I held my 7 year olds birthday here in January. The instructor had the patients of a saint, and all of the kids had fun, and stayed busy. Thank you so much, will be recommending the Taube to my friends.

A bit about our museum...

The Lillian and Coleman Taube Museum of Art, formerly known as the Minot Art Gallery is a public non-profit membership driven organization.

The Minot Art Association, which was the founding organization, opened the Minot Art Gallery in 1970 by a group of patrons with the intent of creating an art gallery. In 2006 the Minot Art Association formally changed their name to the Lillian and Coleman Taube Museum of Art. The Minot Art Gallery was initially located in the Linha home on Hwy 83 North. It then moved to the Ward County Historical Society building located on the North Dakota State Fairgrounds east of Minot. In 1978 the Minot Art Gallery was relocated to another Ward County Historical Society building, the J.E. Harmon House, also located on the North Dakota State Fairgrounds. In 1997 the organization achieved their goal of securing a permanent location and the Minot Art Gallery moved to the historically renovated Union National Bank building located at 2 North Main.

Our Vision:

The Lillian and Coleman Taube Museum of Art encourages affiliation with various community arts groups, such as the Minot Area Council of the Arts, the North Dakota Art Gallery Association, and the Mouse River Players, to strengthen the arts in our region. We provide opportunities for the community to learn about all forms of the visual arts through our varied exhibits. The Lillian and Coleman Taube Museum of Art is open to the public 12 months of the year, five days a week.
