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

Even though it rained, we rode/walked our bikes through this wonderful park area carefully balanced between art and landscape. They've done a great job and have included some very well-known artists. Just go!

The Sculpture Garden is smaller than expected, but it has several large sculptures in a peaceful garden setting.

If you want to spend sometime with your dear one in the afternoon at a place in Minneapolis, this garden should be a good choice. The sculptures pose well in summer along with the green fresh trees around. There are not too much stuffs to explore. I found the writings carved on stone interesting and hilarious. I haven't seen any... More

Other than the famous spoon and cherry, the sculptures look like left over industrial mess. It is a nice place to take a walk. Not sure it is worth the parking fee.

This is located near the Walker Art Center, but is free of charge. The grounds are nice and the modern art is impressive. This is well worth a visit.

It was nice just to walk around and look at the sculptures and a few parks are in walking distance. Overall there is a lot of places in walking distance so I recommend spending a couple hours down there at least!

Even though all the art displayed is extremely modern... almost industrial... I've got to admit that the trees next to the spoonbridge & cherry are amazing... perfect for picnic, reading outdoors or just sit and look at the spoonbridge & cherry and relax.

I have lived in Minnesota for 15 years. I always heard about the Minneapolis Sculpture Garden but hadn't gone. I heard excellent things about the miniature golf now offered there so took my family on a Wednesday. We got there at 3:30 and mini golf was already sold out for the day (they do not take reservations or tee times... More
