Within the framework of administrative divisions, Minusinsky District is one of the forty-three in the krai. The town of Minusinsk serves as its administrative center, despite being incorporated separately as a krai town—an administrative unit with the status equal to that of the districts. The district is divided into thirteen selsoviets.
As a municipal division, the district is incorporated as Minusinsky Municipal District and is divided into thirteen rural settlements (corresponding to the administrative district's selsoviets). The krai town of Minusinsk is incorporated separately from the district as Minusinsk Urban Okrug.
The Abakan-Tayshet railway runs through the district. A part of the federal highway M54 passes through the district as well.
