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.

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.

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.

No need to go, enjoy it once I am sure the construction is done and it is better than ever. I am not sure of the changes, but I am sure it will be good.

The site is surrounded by noisy traffic, but once you are in the garden, it relaxes your senses immediately. It's just pure pleasure to walk among plants, greens and great arts.

A major reconstruction effort is happening right now. Looks a bit like a disaster zone. New pieces will be introduced.

We did visit Minneapolis in January, but I had read such great reviews of the sculpture garden that we decided to visit. There was no place to park for free that we could find, so I paid the $5-6 to park for the 20-30 minutes or so that we did walk around the garden. It seemed like not all of... More

I got engaged here, so I'm a little partial to it, but it's a beautiful park with something for everyone. Kiddos can roam and explore, and adults can look at the cool sculptures and make conversation. Beautiful place.

You can see the Cherry and Spoon BUT with the construction all around. Made us giggle since we had been to Minneapolis several time but not made it to this icon. "More sculptures coming in 2017" so maybe next time.

Discovered the garden was under major construction so couldn't visit today. But can't wait for reopening in June 2017. Glad to still see the spoon and cherry still sitting among the construction.

The Sculpture Garden is free and so much fun. Go across the foot bridge and explore Loring Park. You will find a great Dunn Bros Coffee Shop to rest in. Parking is a challenge. Try the city lot by the Cathedral, under the freeway ramp.
