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
