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.

Who isn’t impressed by a giant cherry on a spoon? I appreciate the openness of the area and being able to let small children run, teenagers roam and couples stroll all in the same place.

While some have complained about the removal of a number of trees, most, including our family, find it masterful. The new garden is more wide-open and welcoming. One can still sit and enjoy, and have a feeling of calm. The art and the activities make...More

This place is definitely interesting. If you are artistic, it's definitely worth going to. If you are not, it's still fun to see, although you probably won't spend more than an hour there.

The recent upgrades have resulted in a beautiful space that feels more like an outdoor gallery. Lots of information on the sculptures which deepens viewer appreciation. Sculptures are well positioned to take advantage of parts of the city as a backdrop.

I've been a fan of the Minneapolis Sculpture Garden at the Walker Art Museum for many years. However, since the renovation of the garden with additions to the pieces on display, the garden is significantly improved. Lines of site are more conducive to taking in...More

They have a very interesting mini golf in the park which we had to pay for but it was worth the fun as it's quite different than your normal mini golf parks. Very nice walk around the sculpture garden as well.

Free, fun and stimulating—what’s not to love? The approach is visually quite stimulating. There are several dozen unrelated gigantic installations throughout this outdoor space adjacent to the Walker Center. The area felt like 4-5 footballs. If you desire to observe each item closely then allot...More

This is an interesting and relaxing place. It is good to go here for a stroll on a nice day, wether you are solo, a couple, or a family with young children.

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

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.
