This is a great place to walk, and would be appreciated by teens or adults interested in art. However, it is not good for younger kids and definitely not seniors that have difficulty walking. Although the website says so, it is NOT handicap-friendly. The indoor...More

Four hours is more than enough. If weather permits, taking a guided trip of the Sculpture Park is great. I think 90 mins. for the inside exhibits is my personal limit. And it is worth taking some time in the gift shop.
