Grounds For Sculpture is located on the former site of the New Jersey State Fairgrounds. Founded by Seward Johnson, the non-profit park has been enchanting visitors since 1992. Visitors to the park can enjoy the outdoor permanent collection which features hundreds of magnificent large-scale outdoor sculptures, rotating indoor exhibitions in two 10,000 square foot museum galleries. In addition, guests can learn about contemporary sculpture through a variety of educational programs including art classes for all ages, artist residencies and lectures, tours for adults, schoolchildren, toddlers, and touch tours for the blind.
The park also offers various special events, concerts and performances, shopping, and dining–including the Zagat-rated fine dining destination known as Rat’s Restaurant. In 2009, over 115,000 people visited Grounds For Sculpture. Conveniently located in the New York–Philadelphia travel corridor just outside of Princeton, New Jersey, Grounds For Sculpture is easily accessible by road and rail. With ample free parking available on site, the sculpture park is open year round, six days a week. Please note, it is closed on Mondays.
