The grounds are beautifully landscaped and filled with so many wonderful sculptures. As you walk around you will be delighted at every turn. The Ratz restaurant is located across from a beautiful garden. Try to make a reservation before you go. The admission fee is $15 for adults and $12 for seniors.

This is one of the coolest places we have been to in NJ. Our son and DIL are members and go frequently. It is a most unique place and I can see it would be fun for kids too. We did many double takes wondering if it was real or a sculpture . We spent a few hours, stopped for... More

Secrets abound within the grounds. Keep your eyes open as you adventure through the art. The collection is somewhat eclectic as many of the artists are friends of Mr. Johnson. Many of the sculptures allow you to interact with them and the original appeal were the classical impressionist based scenes which let you enter a famous painting. The grounds have... More

What a lot of fun. It is fun because you get to interact with the sculptures. It is fun taking funny pictures with all the different sculptures. It is also amazing how life like many are. In fact you forget if something is real or not. Go early as it gets crowded and take some water with you on hot... More

Grounds for Sculpture is very enjoyable for all ages. Numerous paths wind through the grounds so that you can enjoy the many unique sculptures. They can be enjoyed and appreciated by all ages and many are interactive. I especially enjoyed being able to "step into" a classic paintings and take a picture with Mona Lisa! The grounds are beautiful with... More

Grounds of Sculpture is nice - but before you go you should know that it is located in the middle of no where. A detour caused us to go out of the way, and once we arrived, we discovered that it is located within an industrial park. One might think that the #1 rated attraction in Hamilton, New Jersey would...

What a fun, interesting, pleasurable way to spend a day. Open year round, this over 40 acre sculpture garden can be enjoyed by small children through the elderly. You can touch just about all of the whimsical sculpture that ranges from small to 3 stories high. Many surprise you, as you think they are real people. Some are taken from... More

Every where you turn you will see a sculpture. Take your time and enjoy the day. If hot out there are plenty of places to cool down. If cold they have heating huts to warm up. Photographers will delight in so many photo ops. Have visitors coming to town put this on your list for an outing.

My wife has wanted to visit here for a long time. We finally made plans to meet friends here for the day. I wish we went sooner. My expectations were to see different plants, bushes, etc all trimmed to appear like animals, dinosaurs and people (gardens). However, it is nothing like that at all. The sculptures are of everyday people... More

My recommendation for the landscaped Garden of Living Sculptures is straight and simple - any one visiting USA in the N.E. region MUST spend sometime here. It helps us fathom our own depth that permits to be charmed by the sheer beauty of artistic creations. The earlier reviews like "A Nice Day out ...."; "Sculptures abound" and such others can... More
