Natural Awakenings Milwaukee

Lynden Sculpture Garden Reopens for Social Distance Tours

The Lynden Sculpture Garden, a 40-acre outdoor sculpture park in Milwaukee, has reopened its grounds for social distance walking. The hours are 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. daily; closed on Thursdays. Admission is free at this time, but visitors are invited to become members.

Visitors must check in with an app by scanning a QR code after entering the grounds so staff can collect information should contact tracing become necessary. All visitors are asked to wear a mask, observe social distancing and avoid touching the sculptures. Lynden reserves the right to limit entry if there are too many visitors on the grounds, and to enforce social distancing and group-size guidelines.

The Lynden house and grounds were purchased by Harry and Peg Bradley in 1927. They retained Chicago landscape architects William Langford and Theodore Moreau to transform the flat farmland into an English country garden. In 1962, Peg—already an experienced art collector—began collecting the contemporary monumental sculptures that secured Lynden’s international reputation. The collection includes sculptures by renowned artists such as Alexander Archipenko, Henry Moore, Barbara Hepworth, Clement Meadmore, Marta Pan, Tony Smith, Mark di Suvero and many others.

Location: 2145 W. Brown Deer Rd., Milwaukee. For more information, visit
