Owner description: 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.

“One of the top attractions in the Twin Cities”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 17, 2012

Of course you will first visit the Walker Art Center next store, but no stop in Mpls is complete without a visit to the iconic Spoonbridge and Cherry sculpture. Take a walk over the bridge to Loring Park and have lunch or dinner at one of the restaurants facing the park on the North side.

“Relax and bring a picnic”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 15, 2012

This is just a relaxing place to wander and enjoy the view. Pack a picnic and throw down a blanket . . . sit in the shade of a sculpture.

“Iconic Minneapolis”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2012

If you come to Minneapolis, you HAVE to get a picture of you in front of the cherry & spoon! It is a MUST. Other than that the sculptures are a nice stroll but not too exciting.

“Not Huge but Cool”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2012

Was hoping for a bigger venue with lots and lots of sculptures, but it was a nice walk around. We wandered over after hitting the Walker Center.

“Very interesting”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 8, 2012

Lots of interesting (and some strange) outdoor art. Great place for photographs. Saw many families having professional photo shoots. Visited on a coolish day, but enjoyed the 'art'! Easy walking excursion.
