The Minneapolis Sculpture Garden is one of the crown jewels of the city’s park system, uniting two of Minnesota’s most cherished resources—its greenspace and its cultural life. 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.

This is such a unique and beautiful outdoor family, date day/night or just hanging out with friends. I've gone all three ways described above. The sculptures are different, inspiring, unbelievable, so unique that we guess what we all think it is or means. My teens love going there as well as my husband and I. My daughter and her very...

A Minneapolis landmark Spoon and cherry bridge. A conservatory as well with a palm court. Avant garde sculptures which are great for all ages. Go on the pedestrian walkway over the freeway to Loring Park and The Basilica of St. Mary and nearby restaurants. Walker art Center (museum) is next door as well. You'll really enjoy this Minneapolis treasure!!!

This was a real treat. A perfect place for taking pics. Love the cherry! My husband and I visited here and had a great time visiting the sculptures. Some were fun, others surprising. I would suggest this is a must see for all visitors.

You have a date night coming up... What to do?!? Rather than the standard dinner and a movie, pack a lunch or a small snack (Kowalski's has some great idea's) and host a small picnic in the garden. This option avoids the uncomfortable silence of the movie and gives you that creative brownie point you need to make this a... More

I visited this place out curiosity and it was an excuse to get out of the house. OK the sculptures were interesting along with the greenhouse as well. But it really din't do a lot to impress me. I very much enjoy the arts but for me this place just isn't doing it. Yet it seems that the geese must... More
