The Murphy Sculpture Garden is at the north-eastern corner of the UCLA campus, and therefore a bit off the beaten track. It will repay a visit, however. It is a peaceful place with a number of statues of varying interest. Which you will like best...More

This is a great place for a stroll or a picnic on a nice sunny day. It is hidden among the campus buildings in north campus at UCLA. It is a trek from public transit stops but worth the walk. There are works from the...More

The Murphy Sculpture Garden is hidden in plain sight inside the huge UCLA campus. You'll need a map or guide to find it, then once you do you'll be astonished. Spaced around an area of Jacaranda trees is a marvelous world class sculpture collection. 1st...More

This was our second visit to the sculpture garden on campus. We discovered it quite by accident. Being daily walkers, we chose to walk the campus from our nearby hotel and came upon the garden quite by accident. We liked it so much on that...More

Some of the most beautiful sculptures found in a quite setting of a peaceful garden. A wonderful place to enjoy the day, rest from business and relax among displays of great talent.

Don't do anything else with your life. Go to the Murphy Sculpture Garden in May. Plan on staying the entire month. Have your friends bring you food and water. If they are your friends, they should at least do that for you.

The sculpture garden has some of the best examples of modern and contemporary sculpture in the western US. Works by Serra, Moore, Matisse, Miro, Zuniga, Lachaise, Archipenko and others grace a beautiful setting on the UCLA campus.

The beautiful Jacaranda trees are in full bloom, which enhances the experience of the garden. There are quite a few sculptures, including works by Auguste Rodin, Jacques Lipchitz and Gerhard Marcks.

We strolled the Sculpture Garden as part of a visit to UCLA and Westwood. The jacaranda trees were in bloom which really accented the mostly drak metal of the sculptures. Great architecture too, as well as the rest of the campus landscaping.
