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.

The art inspired mini golf is what originally attracted us to the park. Although the price for mini golfing was a bit steep for adults, we were okay with the price to know that we were supporting local artists. The holes were super clever and...More

We went and saw some of the new attractions that they opened recently but a lot of people are staying away because of the controversy over them re-creating the scaffolding that hung dozens of Sioux Native Americans in southern Minnesota. It was taken down but...More

Think you know what a spoon holding a cherry looks like. When viewed in the Minneapolis Sculpture Garden, there is a whole new perspective. Seeing the giant blue chicken, the backhoe, rabbit jumping over the bell is simply fun: pulling ones imagination in a new...More

Interesting art everywhere with the Minneapolis skyline as a back drop. It doesn't get any more beautiful than that! When we were there, they have cute mini-golf set up. You can picnic, kids can run all around, benches to rest on. Great family/group activity and...More

We love to visit this outdoor art gallery. Some of the sculptures are superb while others are just so-so in my opinion. But the setting couldn't be better and the fact that it is free makes it accessible to all including the many children that...More

If you are coming to Minneapolis, you must visit the Spoonbridge. We went at sunset, the spoonbridge is beautiful and has water cascading down it. We also loved the huge blue rooster statue. A nice little walk for an evening stroll.

Very nice place to visit. Very clean and artistic. The only thing surprising was the price for mini golf. It was too expensive for a game.

Yes it's free and you just walk around at your own pace. We got there early and found street parking very close. If it's busy I am not sure where to park.
