Franconia Sculpture Park

Earlier this week we found out that my mother-in-law (who is legally blind and can't drive) was going to be able to get a ride to northwest Wisconsin, about an hour and a half from where we live. It has been her first chance to visit us since we moved into our new house, so we drove and picked her up. On our way home we made some stops at places we've been wanting to check out.

Our first was at Franconia Sculpture Park, about an hour northeast of the Twin Cities. Many of the sculptures are interactive and encourage play and exploration. We loved that there was a refrigerator next to the parking lot with bottled water and freezies to buy on the honor system. Even the restrooms were decorated with paintings or pictures of sculptures. Their website has games and activities (including a scavenger hunt to print out and bring with to the park) for kids to do. They also have concerts and children's workshops. Our boys both requested a trip back.
