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

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.

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

First off, can I say how happy I am that this is free? And secondly, I've been here 3 times now and still find it interesting every time I go! They let you take pictures and the art is so interesting, and the gardens so beautiful! And the gallery isn't too bad either if you're willing to pay the $14... More

An iconic image of Minneapolis! We went to the Minneapolis Sculpture Garden for the sole reason of seeing Spoonbridge and Cherry. We saw some other sculptures along the way, and they were nice, but we didn't really have interest in anything else. It was worth the trip to the Gardens to see this alone and even better, there is no... More

Nice walk through sculptures. We were there during a multi-park art festival so it was nice having the skywalk go over the interstate so you could go between two parks.
