The Sculpture Garden was beautiful. The sculptures where well placed among each other and the landscaping. The flower garden was very pretty. It was not overly crowded and you could hardly hear the traffic. It was also really close to the Minneapolis Institute of Art,...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
