Attraction details
Owner description: 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.

“A great public playground”
Reviewed October 22, 2012

The Minneapolis Sculpture Garden is a wonderful space for people to congregate and play together. The sculptures invite interaction, and it was refreshing to see adults climbing into and over works of art just as happily as their children. The conservatory had some lovely plants as well as sculpture, and was especially welcome on a cooler afternoon. Even on an autumn day, there were plenty of people enjoying the park.

“unique Garden”
Reviewed October 20, 2012

Went here only for about 15 mins or less, just to take a pic with the spoon & cherry. Lots of sculpture within a mini maze.

“Interesting pieces”

Very nice and there are some interesting piece to view. Relaxing and great for anyone who loves the outdoors. The park was smaller than I thought.

“A Great Outdoors City”
Reviewed October 11, 2012

For outdoors lovers, Minneapolis is the place. Here's a great day: Take a morning walk (or jog, skate, bike or just drive) around Lake Harriet (about three miles), pick up a lunch for a picnic on Lake Calhoun (Whole Foods and other options are nearby), and then visit the Sculpture Garden. The Sculpture Garden has items that are informative, fun, thought-provoking, and gorgeous.
