    An awesome space for tons of sculptures, especially the life like ones. Tickets are a little steep at $15 a person and you can explore pretty much the whole thing in 2 hours at a fairly leisurely walk

    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

    Awesome way to spend time with your friends / family. Very realistic statues and a lot of stuff to look at. Also lots of opportunities for Instagram moments (if that is ur thing)

    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.

    This place is full of serenity and adventure. The perfect spot to spend an entire day exploring each and every sculpture and garden.

    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...

    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

    This is a beautiful place. A bit steep on entry fees, but it's free to explore after eating at Rats (which I don't recommend, honestly).

    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."

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

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