Get a drink or snack, my preference is ice cream; and walk around to view the sculptures. This place is a little hidden gem in the city and a great way to introduce kids to art and listening to their thoughts about the pieces is priceless. You can spend just minutes to hours here and the best part is that... More

I love sculptures but although the garden with tables and chairs provides a nice neighborhood respite, the number of actual pieces was low. All the construction going on around the site is also distracting. Tip: Purchase a beverage from the coffee bar in the MFA (great cappuchino) and take it across the street to sit here and enjoy.

Just attended Houston Livestock And Rodeo. We were on top level. WHere walking shoes. The incline is easier than stairs, but very challenging for elderly or handicapped. Food and drinks were very expensive. $8.95 per beer!

Loved walking in this space. Very peaceful, cool and inviting. Would .love to go back in summer. Most of displays seemed very modern and were well spaced, allowing you to move around them and enjoy all facets.

After visiting The MFA, we found this unique sculpture museum just outside the MFA. The tranquility of the place helped release the stress of the week. Right on the other side there's a waffle truck you can get food from, being it back to the garden and enjoy the rest of the day. It is quiet peaceful.

Unique and well placed sculpture of various sizes, styles and shapes, and metals. One of the surprising pieces was one that looked like a ivy type that appeared dry (dusk in December) and was actually the metal art dropped over a low wall.

The Cullen Sculpture Garden is an attractive sanctuary. They have an impressive collection of world class sculpture in a wonderfully landscaped space. It is across the street from the MFA. Great place to eat a bag lunch away from the hustle and bustle.

This is across the street from the Contemporary Art Museum and the Museum of Fine Art it's unpretentious and a great place to take the kids so they can blow off steam after being quiet at the museums-- plus there is usually a food truck parked right outside of the garden.
