The 11-acre site showcases more than 40 works from the Walker Art Center’s renowned collection. A partnership with the Minneapolis Park & Recreation Board, the Garden is a top destination for visitors, who enjoy not only the art but also the seasonal displays in the Cowles Conservatory and the Alene Grossman Memorial Arbor and Flower Garden. « less

Enjoyed walking among the varied artifacts, commenting on their significance or lack thereof. Also fun to see the parents sharing the place with their children. The greenhouse was nice and warm, and the fish pond/house interesting, and should be gorgeous once the holiday display is mounted.

We enjoyed so much our afternoon stroll in the garden. The enclosed garden with the glass fish was amazing. Wish I could see it in all the seasons. Be sure to pick up a brochure before you walk through, you might miss something!

While visiting our son and his family in Minneapolis, we all spent a lovely and sunny afternoon at the Minneapolis Sculpture Garden. We parked on the street beside Loring Park, strolled through the lovely gardens, then crossed the busy highway using the "sky-bridge" and found ourselves at the Sculpture Garden. There is no fee to see this place. On this... More

Across the street from the Walker Art Museum lies one of the greatest places in the Twin Cities: The Minneapolis Sculpture Garden. This free (that's right FREE, no cost, no money down) area houses some of the most interesting outdoor art you can find. The iconic Cherry and Spoon, for example. On the other side of the garden, you can... More

An easy walk through Loring Park to the sculpture garden from downtown. You've got to go and get your picture taken in front of the Cherry and Spoon. Plus the squirrels in the park are so tame they come up to your feet and hold out their paws for a treat.

this is a nice collection of modern sculpture. the visit into the garden doesn't take your time, it's in the city. it's to spend some time, recreate in the middle of the day, and look something new

We were here in early October this year and it was a bit chilly, but the park is beautiful and we absolutely loved teh cherry and spoon. It's definitely worth seeing and we spent a pleasant afternoon there.
