Overview

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.

Beyond the Cherry & Spoon is a the Blue Chicken, a spectacle in itself. It's a beautiful walk particularly on warm day/ Stop at the Walker for a show or cocktail or both.

It’s a fun place to stop! As locals, we like to take visitors here to see the cherry! The recent renovations are nice and my favorite is the tree with windchimes!!

You will have to pay a little for parking, but it's worth it. We spent about an hour walking and reading about the sculptures. Most were interactive, meaning you could walk into them or on them.

I've been here a couple of times and it was nice. But I can see from the highway, they've got the new sculptures up. I like visiting during spring and summer so I get to see the out door plants as well.

So fun to see so many significant works by world renowned artists, Calder, De Suervo, Fritsch, Kcho, Cragg, Serra, Kelly to name a few. The large installation by Mark Manders was our favorite, not sure why. Easy to spend an hour hour without realizing how...More

Looks like some new sculptures since my last visit. Glad they kept the iconic cherry and spoon. The museum next door is wonderful too.

This is a fun and unique sight to see, but not a place I would particularly recommend or want to visit again.

Making a day downtown during the summer always includes some time at the Minneapolis Sculpture Garden. Easy on the street parking, or in the ramp at the Walker Arts Center affords us easy access. There's even mini-golf which helps keep the kids engaged.

This provides for some unique things to look at and walk around. Each item has its own story picture opportunity.

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.
