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.

A wonderful way to spend an hour or so when the sun is out. Along with the famed Spoonbridge and Cherry are some other unique sculptures. Combine your visit with a stroll through Loring Park or the Walker Art Museum.

Having lived in Minneapolis 10+ years, I visited for the first time with out-of-town guests! Ashamed I haven't been here earlier. Great day to be outside walking through the garden. Plenty of visitors, but lots of space, so not feeling the crowd. This is worth the stop for a great walk through a great park!

The big deal here is the cherry and the spoon but I thought the other exhibits were more interesting. There is a map in the boxes ranged about. The garden is open from 6:00 so you can go early if you want. The weather was still winter I would imagine it would be better in the spring/summer

Trendy, scenic, and interesting, the Sculpture Garden is a must for visitors and residents alike. Located right outside of downtown, it is easy to walk to and gives a great view of the skyline.

We were married in Stillwater MN and were looking for something fun and exciting to do and we found the sculpture gardens. The variety of awe inspiring sculptures was amazing, and it was free.

Great place for something different. Went on a first date there and was different than the typical movie and dinner. We were able to talk the whole time (unlike a movie) and the sights gave us conversation points!

This outdoor sculpture garden is especially beautiful when everything is in bloom. It's calm and peaceful and you forget that you're in downtown Minneapolis. The Walker and Sculpture Garden often host special events like Rock the Garden and mini golf. The garden is also nice in the winter when the weather is decent. The Spoon Bridge and Cherry is always... More

When the weather is nice this is a beautiful place to walk and enjoy the sculptures throughout the garden. There are plenty of benches to sit and just enjoy the view.
