My wife and I went to the gardens for the first time yesterday while on a mini vacation. There are numerous gardens and statues every where. The place is beautiful and something not to be missed. The gardens are both inside and out side as are the sculptures.

We were in town visiting my son at college. I took my brother, father, 20 year old son and his girlfriend to see the butterfly exhibit. It turns out she was terrified of butterflies, but we still had a good time. They do not have the range and caliber of gardens as the Chicago Botanical Gardens, yet, but the outdoor... More

We enjoyed walking around and looking at all of the sculptures, especially the Da Vinci horse. The gardens were beautiful as well, although perhaps they would be better in summer.

We arrived at the gardens as they opened at 9am on a weekday, which turned out to be great as we barely saw another person as we walked around outside. We were able to stroll in peace around the large and beautiful gardens, which had a great combination of long vistas and cosy little hedged areas. While we are more... More

This is our second visit to this beautiful spot. The first time I was surprised it seemed more like a sculpture park than a garden. The second visit made me really appreciate how beautiful it is. We took the tram tour learning about the sculptures and then saw the films that helped us learn more about the Chihuly "Lena's Garden"... More

My husband and I had a wonderful afternoon walking every inch of the gardens. So peaceful, relaxing and beautiful! Looking forward to going back in the spring to see the outside in a different season.

We visited here for a day the end of August 2014. I would recommend 2 to 3 hours to see everything if your an adult without children with you. Four hours with kids. Loved seeing Venice Fly Traps and cactus , so mant varieties. Most of the sculptures were quite interesting. I loved so many of them. The tram ride... More

Wonderful flora and sculptures within an easy walk. For those that do not want to walk so much, a tram is available.

We headed to the Meijer Gardens and Sculpture Park on a day that we just felt like walking around outside and didn't have much expectation other than a pleasant day. Were we ever surprised! The sculptures are scattered around the entire grounds, some nearly hidden, like the two deer that are jumping out of the brush, and some in their... More
