    When you walk in, it doesn't even feel like you're in NJ. You feel transported to Europe or Asia. There are over 250 sculptures - 35 beautiful acres - peacocks running wild. It's great fun! Read more

    Spend an entire lazy day here. Bring a book, find the hammock, take a nap, have a picnic or explore. Bonus: bring along an art history buff who can point out the paintings the sculptures are imitating

    You see that door that says "No Entrance" near Rats? Yeah go through that door and don't miss out on Renoir's "Luncheon of the Boating Party."

    They say "no outside food allowed" but lines at the cafes tend to get very long on weekends. If you aren't obnoxious about it, you most likely can get away with bringing your own picnic.

    Great place to wander & appreciate art. One visit doesn't do it justice, think of what each season is like! Do stop at Rats to eat, drink, sit outside by the water...

    The toilet paper has the consistency of that course brown hand-drying paper. Be wary.

    Probably the most fun you can have at a sculpture garden. Has both indoor and outdoor stuff & it's all really good.
