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.

Just a short walk from our hotel, and close to the city itself, this location offered great photo opportunities. The main site was the spoon bridge, but it is worth spending time looking at the many other attractions in this peaceful park area. We went...More

We stopped by the sculpture garden after a long day of sightseeing. It was nice to walk among the sculptures. There are bathrooms available and benches for resting. I don't recommend the miniature golf course. It's too expensive and too long. It's also in poor...More

Sculpture gardens can be amazing, but this one is a failure. The collection is great with the big names...Calder, LeWitt, Nevelson, but the work is too close together to give any one piece the space and attention it deserves. You see others behind each piece...More

The sculpture garden connect to Loring Park. Lot to do and see here. Nice family outing. Beautiful place for a relaxing walk and meditation.

This area of Minneapolis is fascinating to walk or drive by on any type of day... whether it's winter, spring, summer or fall . . . I have driven past the Minneapolis Sculpture Garden shortly after living in the Minneapolis area five years after returning.

I have loved the Sculpture Garden from its inception. But the recent rennovations broke my heart. What was once a charming collection of semi private, evergreen tree-bordered Secret Garden "rooms" filled with benches, lawns, and fanciful sculptures, is now an open flat field filled mostly...More

this is a wonderful modern sculpture garden that is free to the public. Some of the work is more interesting than others. But it is all worthwhile. You will not feel as if you have wasted your time. Summer is the best time to visit...More

I’ve visited Minneapolis a couple of times over the past few months, and each time the garden was being renovated. I headed back this time and my patience was rewarded with remarkable sculptures that I got to experience with the perfect backdrop of...light snow! This...More

A must visit location if you’re in Minneapolis for work but can still use some of the early evening to take a walk or a run. The sculptures have names and the history behind them.

Also, if you feel that it is too far a walk from wherever you are downtown, this from the Walker web site : Metro Transit bus lines are 4, 6, 12 & 25.

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.
