  • Amazing place. What great sculptures. The museum building is pretty with great views. Me and my friend spent 2-3 hours there but we could have easily spent the entire day- especially on a nice sunny day, it's fun to explore and look at different sculptures.
  • The kids love it here. Plenty to see outside so it's great for a walk and a picnic. The art gallery inside is okay, little limited and not as little kid friendly. The cafe is lovely but pricey. The gift shop is fantastic.
  • Perfect place to spend half day. Great for kids. Plenty of space to stroll. The sculptures are very interesting for kids and adults. Bring food and water. We had a great time. My son loved! We are definitely coming back. .
  • Amazing outdoor sculpture garden. Huge variety of artwork by talented artists. Perfect place to spend an afternoon with anyone. Bring a picnic lunch and enjoy a spot on the lawn.
  • One of the best museums ever. Excellent for kids and grown ups. The park itself is beatitul for a walk.
