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 an attraction you can spend a little or a lot of time on - wandering as little or as much as you like. Bring a picnic and your camera if you want to spend more time. It is a must see when you are in town.

After reading the negative reviews of the Walker museum, I knew we were going to love it. A huge fan of abstract modern art and the quirky dudes that produce it, we also loved the Minneapolis Art Institute's Mark Mothersbaugh exhibit. At the sculpture garden, we loved the mini golf that was based on these wonderful minds. The spoonbridge and... More

You can't go to Minneapolis without getting a picture with the cherry and spoon! The whole garden is lovely.

Of course the Cherry on the spoon greets one upon entering., but there are also a couple of Henri Moores. Very modern sculpture garden. Good place to bring children.. Nice gardens as well.

The Sculpture Garden is nicely laid out and has a decent collection, though with a heavy tendency towards more modern and geometric styles of sculptures (a couple Henry Moores being among the exceptions. And it really is a garden, including a small greenhouse with a variety of interesting plants. The temporary mini-golf course based on art from the museum was... More
