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

I always visit the sculpture garden when I come to Minneapolis. There is such a variety of sculptures and the setting is lovely

We enjoyed strolling through the garden viewing the sculptures. I loved the benches with the quotes. Best of all it's free!

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.

This sculpture park was okay. I was expecting more sculptures and a little more funky varieties. Comparing this to the Franconia Sculpture Park in Shafer, Minnesota I'd have to give this one only three stars. The park is clean though.

I visited this park a couple years ago in September. My partner & I loved it! A nice walk with a peaceful scenery. With the trip from Chicago.

This is a must-see in Minneapolis. Not a far walk from downtown (maps make it appear further than it is). Next to the information about each sculpture is a little yellow tag with a phone number-you can enter the code to learn more about the piece-very cool. Enjoyed the bridge, the art, and the gardens--all wrapped up in one! Great... More
