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.

I have been visiting here whenever in town for 30+ years. Spoonbridge and Cherry has been a favorite with all family members, along with the Gehry sculpture. So many awesome pieces of art work to wander through. Peaceful and shady. Highly recommend.

All the sculptures of been removed except the cherry in the spoon. I believe the completion for the renovation will be sometime next summer. So as of right now it's not worth going to this sculpture garden.

A nice walk and some interesting art. I am anxious to see what changes and how the renovated garden looks.

This icon of Minneapolis is a favored spot to chill out and see some modern sculpture set in an expansive park, just a short walk from downtown. But don't bother in 2016. Last August my friends got married there and it was the last event to be held at the park. Now it is looking like a bulldozer has had... More

Lots of beautiful areas to walk around and relax - perfect for the after dinner stroll we took. Saw the famous spoon and cherry bridge and a number of beautiful flowers etc. However, my favorite part was a square with a number of stone blocks arranged with interesting sayings or quotes

We really enjoy this place but on our last visit to the walker we found that the sculpture gardens are closed for renovation, how long I don't know but it looks like it could be through the summer based on all the stuff that is dug up.

It was a favorite for locals. There were many sculptures by well known artists. Flowers, trees. Magnificent! I do not understand why the need to remake it!

The Sculpture Garden is a family favorite, but it is under significant renovation until next summer, so it is currently not worth your while. Moreover, the area is undergoing major road construction, so you can get stuck in traffic trying to get in/out of there.

Many cities have museums but few have an outdoor sculpture garden. It's a very pleasant way to see art. Kids love it - and it is manageable in terms of time commitment. It is right off of downtown so also near restaurants and shopping.
