Description:The Walker Art center is an art museum which has an attached outdoor sculpture garden. This internationally acclaimed collection of modern and contemporary visual art, which grows each year through new acquisitions, includes more than 11,000 works. Spanning a diverse range of media that includes painting, sculpture, film, video, photography, and works on paper, the Walker's permanent collection is augmented by more than 800 holdings that reflect the Walker's unique multidisciplinary offerings in the visual, performing, and media arts of our time.

The Sculpture Garden is a great (and free, except for parking!) place to take the family for a picnic on a nice summer day. There is plenty of space for active kids to be active without disturbing others who are more focused on appreciating the art surrounding them. My kids love the whimsical ~Spoonbridge and Cherry~, but we also enjoy walking around and making up stories that features the figures depicted in some the lesser-known sculptures. The Conservatory is just beautiful too.
