“unmissable sculpture garden!”

Laumeier Sculpture Park. Park in the lot, then walk to the right (south side) of the building. The eyeball is there, hidden behind some trees. In 1968, Mrs. Matilda Laumeier bequeathed the first 72 acres of the future Laumeier Sculpture Park, together with a large story-and-a-half house of cut stone, to the people of St. Louis County in memory of her husband, Henry H. Laumeier, for the benefit of the greater St. Louis metropolitan area. In 1975, the park was proposed as a possible site for the exhibition of sculpture and the concept of Laumeier Sculpture Park emerged. Catapulted by a collaborative of citizen leaders in the arts, education and business communities, Laumeier Sculpture Park, 501(c)3, was incorporated in September 1977; over the years it has grown to 105-acres. Laumeier Sculpture Park today has over 300,000 visitors annually.Accredited by the American Association of Museums, Laumeier Sculpture Park is today an institution of international significance. The institution itself is one of a handful of open-air museums around the world and a unique compliment to the cultural landscape of the St. Louis region. Laumeier provides high-quality learning experiences for the greater St. Louis community and for visitors from all over the world. The many changing exhibitions, concerts, educational programs, lectures and special events developed at Laumeier Sculpture Park for all to enjoy support the mission of the institution.Throughout the years, Laumeier has been the beneficiary of a long list of generous individuals and corporations who helped develop Laumeier into what it is today. Our Founders List is on view inside the museum and on the Museum Terrace.

Great and interesting stop. Tons of sculptures throughout park that get changed every once in a while. Lots of other things to see - worth the walk.

This a great place to stop if you're traveling with a dog or your pets. This park is pet friendly and fairly large. The trails are well maintained and I'm glad we made the stop!

My boyfriend and I had the best time exploring this sculpture garden. This was a highlight of our roadtrip to Chicago. The sculptures are incredible and HUGE and the trails are awesome to walk on. Thanks so much!

This was a great place to walk around and explore after hours in the car. I was there at around 10am and there were very few people outside- the sculptures were very charming and whimsical. Definitely a road trip pick me up.

Really cute stop to get out of your car and walk around for a bit. I went here with my 9-month-old son and he loved looking at the silly sculptures. Plus, loads of opportunities for great photos.
