This sculpture garden rivals any I've seen in the world. From classic sculpture to stark modern pieces to fun and pretty things, the collection has just about everything an art lover would want to see. The central piece is Oldenburg's "Spoonbridge and Cherry" which has...More

Wow! I am not a modern art fan, typically, but loved this sculpture garden. It was worth walking from the center of the city to view the incredible sculptures. A must see!

I am not crazy about sculpture. A group I belong to offered a docent tour, so I went along hoping to enjoy it. I do love the cherry. I did not like the blue rooster. It was interesting to learn about some of the sculptures,...More

I'm not very into art but was with a group of people who wanted to see this so I went along. It's November so all of the plants are dead and the trees are bare so it looked very flat and barren during our visit....More

An impressive outdoor sculpture garden. The garden design is excellent that places the OUTSTANDING collection in interesting and engaging setting. Fun for a walk after dinner, for a picnic or family outings.

Even at a rainy day a mut see when visiting Minneapolis. Entry to the garden is free while the museum offers free visits every first Saturday of the month.

It’s not a very large garden, but nice and peaceful walking around and taking in all of the art. You’re in a park setting, and the scenery is nice as well. You do have to pay to park around the sculpture garden area, unless you...More

Nice path, clean park, benches to rest and fun photo op with the spoon. We were lucky to find street parking. Pay parking deck and lot near by. Talk the bridge over the highway to see the Basilica.

Located between a bright yellow bridge that crosses the expressway to downtown Minneapolis and The Walker Art Center is this gem of an urban sculpture garden. Stroll past a giant blue chicken, a silo hiding a treasure, giant boulders with soldered metal exteriors and an...More

I'd recommend the 6, as it's a high frequency line! The stop would be Vineland. The stop is pretty easy to see coming as it's the first stop outside of downtown. If it isn't too cold though, I'd recommend walking down... More

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.
