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.

If you are looking for a special park for walking or just relax this is the best place. I went here because I was curious to see the famous gigantic tea spoon. I remained impressed. I suggest to walk around and explore the others monuments

We went there and really enjoyed the sculpture garden and the outside events. We played mini golf that was out of this world fun. It was modern art meets mini golf, everybody thought it was great. The museum was very contemporary so not much in the way of conservative art.

Not my top thing to do in Minneapolis, but it was a very quick 3 min visit. I literally just stopped to take a picture and then left, maybe its better to visit in the summer. I went in February and its was cold and windy!

One of the best spots for uniquely MPLS photos. It is fun to wander through the gardens and explore. There are many fun events that typically happen there in the summer including music concerts and mini golf.

We visited here after a trip to the Walker Art Center. Overall it was very nice, but I wouldn't go out of your way to come to this park. The sculptures were very nice and the park was well maintained. Would I go again? Probably not. But if you're in the area and have the time, I'd go check it... More

Had been here quit awhile ago, nothing had changed, needs some new attractions. Parking is easy. The flowers need updating too, nothing had changed over the years, wouldn't go back unless updates.

I'm not very artsy, but decided to give it a try. It was a interesting place just not for me. But we were able to walk across the street to a little park. If your into art, it's a fun place, if your not, don't bother going.

Sometimes you just need a playmate date. This is an afternoon of play and really budget friendly. Lots of the sculptures are moved but your camera will still find plenty of eye candy.
