  • I've been there twice and it *was* great. But the Beniniis have moved (I was told to Blanco), the ranch is for sale for some time now, and almost all outdoor sculptures have been removed. The garden is closed and the gallery is empty. I talked with this listing real estate agent on the premises 2019 Aug 10. The web site doesn't tell you any of this.
  • I've visited the Sculpture ranch twice now. While the drive thru the ranch with metal and stone sculptures is nice, what I enjoyed most was the indoor exhibit. At the time of my visit, not sure if the display changes, the indoor exhibit was an amazing display of hand painted artwork that presented the illusion of depth and three dimensions. Even more, unlike many museums, this one allowed me to bring my professional camera gear in, and shoot photos of the art work. They asked me to email them any images I took that captured the three dimensional effects of the images in a unique way. The museum staff were very friendly and informative. I would return again, with friends to introduce them to this unique hidden place that many don't know exists.
