A Different Kind of Museum
Grounds For Sculpture is a 42-acre sculpture park, museum, and arboretum founded on the site of the former New Jersey State Fairgrounds.
Opened to the public in 1992, it has become one of the premier cultural destinations in New Jersey, welcoming and enchanting over 3 million visitors since then.
Founded by artist and philanthropist Seward Johnson, the nonprofit Grounds For Sculpture presents and conserves an exceptional collection of contemporary sculpture, offers outstanding programming for all ages, and provides rotating exhibitions in six indoor galleries.
