Whether alone or with a friend or family member, wow what a day at Grounds for Sculpture! Admission is reasonably priced to wander from sculpture to sculpture and in and out of the museum buildings that allow plenty of space without ever feeling like you cannot view a piece or that there's just so much to see you won't see...

Couldn't ask for a better place to visit on a gorgeous summer day. So much to see....and enjoy. Grounds were impeccable....sculptures were so realistic...can't wait to go back. Had an amazing brunch at Rats which is on the grounds.

I discovered this place a few years ago with an Entertainment book coupon. It is a beautiful and amazing place. There are surprises around every corner. The sculptures are absolutely amazing and they change annually or more. We have since brought family and friends who have been amazed as well.

Interesting and engaging in a way I never thought art could be. Best enjoyed on a nice, sunny day. Bring a camera, at least one friend, and a sense of fun and playfulness.

The site is filled with peaceful walkways along with benches placed throughout. Admission is very reasonable and parking is free. The main exhibition was comprised of a retrospective of Seward Johnson's works. As you walk you encounter lifelike sculptures in naturalistic situations that can't help but make you smile as you realize the figures are not real. There is also... More

Forty beautiful acres filled with creative, imaginative, often amusing sculptures. Have visited several times, enjoying both their regular exhibits and their special exhibitions. A unique and very special place. Also great fun for photographers with a sense of humor!

What an amazing place. I can't believe I didn't know of it before now. I'm already planning a return visit. The planning! The execution! I can't speak highly enough about it. There is a surprise and delight every where you look. Every display is carefully thought out and magnificently done. I've never seen anything like it. I'm telling EVERYONE to... More

Excellent park to spend a day: price is reasonable include parking; a lot to see, almost every corner has something interesting, you need comfortable shoes, not for rainy day (partially inside).

We spent about three hours on the grounds of this amazing place but probably could have spent the whole day here. There is currently a Seward Johnson exhibit that runs thru September, but I assume many of his works will still be here after the special exhibit closes. BUT TRY TO MAKE IT BEFORE THE EXHIBIT CLOSES.The grounds have some... More
