    Frederik Meijer Gardens & Sculpture Park

    The Meijer Gardens is thrilled to announce the reopening date of Monday, June 8, 2020 at 9:00 am! The reopening of Meijer Gardens is made possible by the long standing generous support of the Meijer family, the willingness of our members to continue to support us, the dedication of our volunteers and the loyalty and hard work of our employee team members.
    Due to current social distancing and safety guidelines, certain areas within the main building and outside grounds will remain closed for the time being.

    Michigan's second most popular tourist attraction ... one of the world's 100 most visited art museums ... one of the Top 30 Must-See Museums on the planet.

    These are just some of the accolades earned by Frederik Meijer Gardens & Sculpture Park. Just minutes from downtown Grand Rapids, this 158-acre haven integrates horticulture and sculpture throughout its site, setting it apart from other more traditional botanic garden or art museum experiences.

    How to Experience Frederik Meijer Gardens & Sculpture Park:

    Do I need to purchase tickets in advance?

    No, all tickets are purchased on-site at the Gardens’ main admission desk.

    Are there timed tickets?


    What are the current hours of operation?

    Frederik Meijer Gardens & Sculpture Park is open Monday-Saturday from 9am to 5pm and Sunday from 11am to 5pm.

    Do I have to come at a specific time?


    What can I expect when I arrive?

    The pathway leading to the main entrance has been widened and marked with arrows to separate people entering and leaving the facility. Plexiglass barriers have been installed at points of interaction between guess and workers. Signs at the main entrance inform guests that they should visit at another time if they are feeling unwell and that they need to wear masks indoors. Physical distancing reminders have been placed throughout the facility.

    Will they take my temperature?


    Do we have to wear masks?

    Yes, all visitors and workers over the age of five are required to wear a mask at all times inside the facility, unless they are physically unable to wear one. Guests may temporarily remove masks while eating/drinking in the Café or Snacking Area. Guests should also consider wearing masks outside in the Sculpture Park if they cannot maintain at least 6’ distance from people outside their own household.

    How many people area allowed to enter?

    Indoor attractions are limited to 50% of normal visitor capacity by order of the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services. The Gardens limits capacity to ensure proper distancing.

    Is there an on-site restaurant open?

    The James & Shirley Balk Café has altered its menu to offer a variety of grab-and-go items, made fresh daily. Due to current guidelines, staff must collect the name and phone number of all parties who choose to dine in. Otherwise, all food and beverages can be taken to-go and enjoyed in the Meijer-Shedleski Picnic Pavilion.

    Are there sanitation areas?

    No-touch hand sanitizer stations are located throughout the facility, including near entry points. Meijer Gardens has implemented a cleaning plan and enhanced infection-control measures in accordance with CDC Guidance.

    Are there parts of the attraction that are closed?

    The opening of the Richard and Helen DeVos Japanese Garden. Japanese gardens, known for shakkei, or borrowed view, are among the world's most revered and treasured garden styles. On June 13, 2015, the eight-acre Richard & Helen DeVos Japanese Garden at Frederik Meijer Gardens & Sculpture Park opened to the public, enhancing the venue's existing displays of sculpture and horticulture. Tranquility, simplicity, and beauty are the essence of a Japanese garden- something long appreciated by Fred and Lena Meijer, whose experiences with and shared love of the form led to asking about one being added to Meijer Gardens.
