Relaxing spot for a stroll on a weekend afternoon or warm summer evening. Visit during the golden hour for maximum photo ops. Convenient parking.

This place is quiet, peaceful and has nice views. Overall an enjoyable way to spend 30-45 minutes. To bad there is not more to do in the area.

Located just outside the Walker Museum and completely free the Minneapolis Sculpture Garden should be a must-visit for anyone visiting The Twin Cities, everything from modern masters like Calder to less-known artists offered in grand scale across several acres that makes for a perfect walk...More

It was raining so we did not leave the museum to walk among the sculpture but enjoyed seeing it from the car and from the museum. It is more interesting than the museum.

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 had not been here before. The recent changes opening the garden to more viewing really show off the place and makes you want to visit. The sculptures are great. The cherry on the spoon is the icon, but others are great as well. Encourage...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

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
