The Minneapolis Sculpture Garden is closed for renovation, and will reopen in June 2017. One of the crown jewels of the city’s park system, the Minneapolis Sculpture Garden unites two of Minnesota’s most cherished resources—its greenspace and its cultural life. A partnership with the Minneapolis Park & Recreation Board, the Garden is a top destination for tourists to enjoy art like the iconic Spoonbridge and Cherry in an outdoor park setting.

The Sculpture Park offers a good variety of works by mostly modern artists. Located near downtown, it is easy to reach by private or public transportation. The openness of the whole park offers visitors more than average viewing spaces that can be seen at a relaxing pace. The park is now under construction, and one should check online resources before... More

This place has always been an enjoyable walk with interesting sculptures. The place is being redone, so I would check to see if it is complete before you go out of your way to include the sculpture garden into your vacation itinerary.

Love walking through this sculpture garden... I always forget that it is there, but it's great way to walk around and spend the afternoon.

If you're planning on heading to the Minneapolis Sculpture Garden in the near future - you might want to wait a while. The garden is closed and under construction until 2017. Though you can still see the bid spoon from a distance - that's about all you can see through the fencing around the mounds of dirt. A little disappointed... More

The sculpture garden offers a great place to take a walk and see the sculptures. However the garden is currently closed for renovations and should reopen in June of 2017.

Cool place, nice atmosphere but DO NOT climb on the spoon for a picture! They will embarrass you with a loudspeaker warning that everyone can hear :-) Go and check it out!

Super Bowl construction is going on all over Minneapolis. In fact, the sculpture garden fell victim to the construction. Except for one piece, The Spoon and the Cherry, sculptures are on loan to other locations and piles of dirt have taken the place of the gardens. The Spoon and the Cherry is totally nonsensical, but totally beloved by the Minneapolis... More

There's lots of other notable places to see in Minneapolis area than this place. We tried it out a year ago. We didn't feel that it was worth the trip from our hotel 15 minutes away. We can say that we experienced the park, but I won't refer friends to go out of their way to see it.

Loved this the last time I was here, but at the moment it's nothing but tractors and dirt. Can't wait to visit again when they've finished the improvements.
