A celebration of all things sculptural, Grounds For Sculpture, features a beautifully landscaped park and museum located on the former New Jersey State Fairgrounds. Founded in 1992 by John Seward Johnson II, the park contains over 270 large-scale contemporary sculptures by Johnson and other international artists. Most notable is the 7.9 m (26 ft) tall sculpture of Marilyn Monroe in her famous white billowing dress from the film "The Seven Year Itch.” Rat’s restaurant is well worth a visit, designed by Johnson to make customers feel as if they are dining in Claude Monet’s beloved town of Giverny.

  • Grounds For Sculpture is an “I’m going to spend the day here” kind of place. Engaging sculpture is everywhere inside and outside. Today was a perfect day outside, so I spent my time there. The artwork is both interesting and amusing. There are benches to sit and contemplate upon & the acreage has an abundance of pathways. Wheel chairs and golf carts are available, call first for availability. My favorites were next to the lake and ponds.
  • Be prepared to walk a lot. Ticket is 20 dollars per person which is reasonable considering there is so much to see. Don’t forget to bring a big bottle of water (there’s a tap inside visitor’s center to refill), sunglasses, sun screen and a comfortable pair of shoes. Also make sure your phone is fully charged. And there you are! Download the map and explore the park at your own pace.
