  • Never expected a grocery tycoon to have such a wonderful art and botanical garden display. I was particularly impressed with the tropical plant displays. But the whole building and outside displays....  more »
  • Gettin in was interesting due to the construction - but well worth it. We did the outdoor loop by foot - 4 1/2 miles was enough. Covid limited the trolly seating so we did not use it. Wonderful fall.....  more »

  • The sculptures are excellent. The tram tours are well organized. The tour guide on the tram was very informative. Tram tour is a must which is reasonably priced. As other reviewers said, this is definitely a must visit place. Around 2-4 hours may be needed. They are expanding now and may be we can expect more indoor things in future.
  • The Sculptures are supper the Artist leaves it up to you to decide what you want them to be. Even thou they had names. Decorate the garden for Hollween.🕷🕸 gardens are lite🎃 up in the even. They do the same Thanksgiving🦃 🍗and Christmas.🎅🎄 Get place for children to go have a children garden and a Japanese🌅 garden. You can see how the Meijer loves God! ☝. The family wants to share their blessing and favor from God, with everyone, and have Sculptures from different ethnic group and Artist. Still expanding to show other gifted people Talent
