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.

“Great garden and sculpture”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 20, 2013

Oh so much more than the giant cherry on the spoon! The garden is breathtaking. The Walker museum, of which this is a part, has some of the most interesting art exhibits.

“A short walk from downtown + free :)”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2013

Very cool sculpture garden a short 10 minute walk from Nicollet Mall in downtown Minneapolis. The best part, it's free! If you do one touristy thing in Minneapolis, this is it. I was in town for a citywide convention and went for a run through the garden. Took the mandatory picture of the cherry + spoon.

“Great on a sunny day”

Free art in the open air is a great thing, and the sculpture park does it very well. Very impressed.

“Enjoyable!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 11, 2013

We enjoyed this! Loved the free attraction, beautiful walk in the outdoors. Parking was cheap and very close. Lots to see. Just wish the people would have been more respectful of the "Do not climb on sculpture" signs, which made some of the sculptures hard to enjoy, but it was still nice. Worth the stop!
