The setting is beautiful, the entrance is free, park is free and convenient. Excellent place to relax and read or just seat. It has a small and very good collection of sculptures by Rodin, Miro, and others. Lovely place to spent some time in the afternoon.

This is a minimal exhibit between the Houston Museum of Fine Arts and Glassell School of Art. It is a pleasant walk through outdoor experience. It only a takes a few minutes to complete. The Museum of Fine Arts is going through a building addition which may affect the gardens.

The collection of sculptures is great. There are tables and chairs, if you wish to sit down and eat your lunch. The Museum of Fine Arts is right across the street.

Around every corner was a unique sculpture of varied materials and styles. Seems like the encroaching construction area has taken away a bit of the area, but as this was a Sunday, no noise or dust to distract. Only a rare temperate and non humid Houston afternoon with shade galore and several patio tables to lounge at. The Street taco... More

This little sculpture garden houses some truly amazing works - they have a Rodin along with plenty of other excellent works. Take a coffee and sit on one of the seats and just soak it all in, this is an oasis in the city! There is a parking lot right next door and you are right in the heart of... More

Although they moved the huge and wonderful Giacometti into the MFA there are still great sculptures here. Works by Matisse, Marini, Maillot and more contemporary artists displayed in a harmonious setting.

To be in the center of such a major city it was an unexpected delight to see such serine to and good quality art works. I am personally so tired of welded together chunks of steel being called sculptures. This was great

sculputures were varied in style and subject. All were thoughtful. Worth a stroll and stop.b they provided tables and chairs for people wanting to lunch in the park. Various food trucks came during the day.
