Other than 15% that was the in-door art display, we found this very disappointing.Save your $39 and go visit your local garden store. Seriously.

Really enjoyed the Sculptureum. Looking forward to coming back in a couple of weeks with my parents to try out Rothko! Entire experience is so well thought out, and such a nice activity to spend a few hours reflecting, admiring and pondering.

I found the grounds and flow of the walk impressive. The art - well simply spectacular. And the food from Rothko - impeccable. I was impressed beyond words.

Sculptureum is wonderful - great gardens, inspiring sayings, stunning sculptures, and superb galleries. And Rothko is amazing - love the food and service. Anthony is fabulous - very willing to share his knowledge and experiences. Thank you for making my day very special.

We were taken here on a Tour Shop organised wine tasting tour. The sculpture galleries and fields were truly amazing and outstanding. This was an unexpected bonus tour tour.

If you enjoy artistic sculptures in a neat garden setting then this is for you. Take a couple of hours to meander around the different gardens and galleries. The Rothko restaurant was a good choice for lunch. A stop between one area and the next...More
