We really enjoyed our time here. Drove through the park and was able to park and snapped some photos. We also took the Bog Walk (narrow) and really enjoyed that as well. Would recommend this for families.

Although my brother in law raced through it, it was really cool, he has added a few more sculptures since the last time I went through.

Easy to find, right before you get to Marquette on M-28. You can pull in and drive through. Says you should only go through if you have 4X4. It's big enough you probably wouldn't want to walk through it, unless you just wanted to. Pretty easy to drive through and take photos. Cool art, open 24 hours. Definitely a kooky... More

We loved this incredible park of one mans' genius displayed in his art work. Iron, steel, stone and weld are not easy mediums to work with. This sculpture park is beautifully keep. The bog walk is gorgeous, don't miss it. The stunning display of welding bead that is in his depiction of the globe is the best I've ever seen.... More

You can walk or drive around the park and see all the sculptures. Very creative and fun to see. In the car it was maybe 20-30 minutes to see it.

An absolute must-visit. And don't drive the sculpture park, definitely walk it. If you don't walk it, you can't get in close to the sculptures and you can't climb on them, which many allow. The sculptures are quite personal, often political, sometimes very sad, but always fascinating. There's also an entire old mine recreated (?) for your viewing pleasure. And... More

Visited this outdoor art venue a beautiful early morning( this is open 24hours) . Can walk a and view the large pieces of art or travel slowly in your car. There are really some unusual pieces in this collection. Sign the log book and leave something as a momento of your visit. Located just east of Marquette on m-28.

Strange but interesting drive-thru park full of bigger than life sculptures. Many are politically bent, but hey, it's a free country and a free visit - so what? Many are just fun and crazy and worth the stop right off the side of the road.

Amazing art, sometimes mixed with politics, and tangible art--you can climb on many of the sculptures. A good place to stretch your legs, let the kids blow off steam and see some down home art.

First off, this is free, so I can't really complain. The subject matter of some of the sculptures is political and will go over kid' heads. The mermaid is topless, which will appeal to some people and will be an issue for some people with kids. The sculptor has obviously put countless hours and a ton of energy into this... More
