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.

I came here during a trip to Minneapolis with my 6-year-old daughter. We both loved it, but probably for different reasons! It was a bit chilly and the ground was wet, but the sculptures were varied and stunning. There's lots of room for the kids to run (though they shouldn't expect to be able to climb all over the art!). The Spoonbridge and Cherry is very cool, but some of the other pieces are just as spectacular! There was a wedding the day we went, so the photo ops were a little limited in places due to reception tents and wedding set up areas. It's good for maybe an hour and half of entertainment (more if it's a nice warm day). If it gets too cold, you can go right across the street to the Walker Art Gallery, which is also free!

We walked through the garden on our way to the Walker Museum. The Cherry & Spoon are interesting and the grounds are well kept but I don't consider this as a destination spot.

This is a beautiful place to enjoy the outdoors and the iconic cherry spoon. Go when the weather is decent. There is a nice conservatory that is heated and a giant glass fish to check out in addition to the sculptures outside. They range from more classical to modern and it's not just the cherry spoon.

Parking can get a little bit full at the paid lot. We parked up the hill on a residential street where it said 1 hour parking and we stayed longer than 1 hour and didn't get towed.

The sculptures are situated in a beautiful park west of downtown. Upon entering you're greeted by the fascinating sight of the big cherry spoon. Heading north are additional sculptures and a beautiful flower garden with the path covered with trellis of gorgeous vines. Continuing the loop through the park are more sculpture and even one you can climb and swing on. Don't forget to visit the greenhouse on your way out. It's filled with succulents and other more tropical/temperate flowers and plants. In the middle is a giant glass fish surrounded by benches for reflection.
