We enjoyed the sculpture garden. I can see how it would be really nice in the summer, we still enjoyed it in the winter. The spoon and cherry was super cool and we also like the big blue rooster. The main sidewalks were cleared and...More

We visit the art garden several times a year and enjoy our time with the kids (now teenagers). I'm not a huge fan of the "native grass" areas as it is covered with weeds.

A plethora of sculptures pique curiosity and interest - very different than it was even a few years ago with a new layout and new sculptures. The Spoonbridge and Cherry are still a favorite centerpiece - wonderful view of downtown!

Every time we visit Minneapolis we come to this park. It is eye appealing, fun, relaxing, excellent for pictures and most of all, unique. We live the giant spoon and pond. Highly recommended. Great place for groups, family or just a stroll on your own.

Put this way where on earth do you see a cherry on a large spoon ? No where and it's great place to visit Minneapolis for that reason. I do go there every weekends just for fun

If there is an iconic image that represents Minneapolis to the world it is Claes Oldenburg's Spoonbridge and Cherry. The sculpture is in fact a fountain and has it's own little pond. It takes center stage in the Minneapolis Sculpture Garden. But the garden has...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.
