Best things to do in Des Moines

Museu de Arte
“Awesome, word class museum. The architecture of the original museum wing was designed in a combination of Art Nouveau and Art Deco styles by Eliel Saarinen in 1945 and completed in 1948. The second addition was designed in a Modernist style by I.M. Pei in 1966 and completed in 1968. The third wing was designed by Richard Meier and completed in 1985. I have always called it "the toilet," affectionately (It's very white and smooth...). https://www.desmoinesartcenter.org/”

“Well - if you're cutting carbs - you may need to take a holiday and enjoy all the fresh baked deliciousness that La Mie has to offer! This place has great metropolitan energy - excellent breakfast, lunch and brunch menu items, outstanding coffees and all the French breads your heart could ever desire. They are open from Mon-Sat from 7a-4p, the kitchen shuts down at 3p daily - closed on Sunday. Don't miss this one!! ”

Stop and think about that for a minute -- the best blockbuster movies, amazing on-site brewed beer and delectable hand-made food all crafted by serious movie-beer-food folks. For those who believe that movie going should be so much more than just staring at a screen, Flix Brewhouse is a game-changer.”
