Minneapolis Sculpture Garden, Minneapolis Reviews - Write a Review

  • After being closed for renovations since last spring, it is good to be back on the grounds. Those that are familiar with the place may experience mixed emotions upon seeing the revamped space. I miss a few of the older sculptures, especially those I had happy memories with my family. It is nice to see some familiar older sculptures, like getting reacquainted with old friends. There is some excitement and wonder with the new sculptures, and I look forward to forging new experiences and memories with them. The removal of some foliage makes the place feel less cozy, but also opens things up. I like that you can see more of the garden from any vantage point. It will be fun to see how the new plants and trees change the feel of the place as time marches on.

  • Nice garden to visit. I really liked the benches that had phrases written on them. The general area around the park is also quite nice.

  • A nice place for a walk. Many different sculptures to look at. It has been recently renovated and as nice as it looks I liked it better back then with all the trees. It's still a nice place to visit and get some pictures of the Cherry on a Spoon.

  • Fantastic display of large scale sculpture. The site was recently re-opened I was told, and so there are still roped off areas to allow plan life to grow. This makes for a great hour or two in the outside displays alone. The artists miniature golf was hilarious! August 2017

  • This place is good for a nice stroll when the weather is pleasant but the art is nothing to write home about. Though I appreciate modern art which is intelligent making a large size sculpture of a common object or animal should not be considered as art. You can keep it in a theme park. I didn't find either the spoon and cherry / big blue rooster or for that matter any of them as art. You can always give an interpretation. If you a person who has a limit on what one may call as art you can stay away from this place. A nice peak at the cathedrals and the weather being nice were the only reasons I didn't think it was totally wasted time.
