"Walker Art Museum & Sculpture Gardens" Walker Art Center / Sculpture Garden Tip by zwei618

The art in this particular museum is rather odd....well everything about this place is rather odd right down to the eyeball wallpaper but if you're into arts & culture this is a nice day excursion. Every first Saturday is Family Free Day complete with special programs & events throughout the day. Our favorites are the open-air summer concert/picnics in the sculpture gardens which are right across the street. The sculpture garden is home to THE CHERRY SPOON which is a famous Minneapolis landmark. It's even featured on a local news stations weather report as a backdrop. There is also a greenhouse with a HUGE glass fish sculpture in it's center. It's a must see but good luck getting a picture of the whole fish...call me inept but I haven't been able to.

Address: Located on Vineland Place
Directions: At the junction of Hennepin, Lyndale, and Oak Grove
