    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

    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.

    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

    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...

    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).
