1,000 Places to See Before You Die

In a 2009 article for Sky Magazine, Patricia Schultz, author of "1,000 Places to See Before You Die", lists Grand Rapid's Meijer Gardens as number 13 on her list of top 30 must-see museums!

This ranking comes alongside such internationally celebrated art museums as The Guggenheim Museum Bilbao in Bilbao, Spain; The Hermitage in St. Petersburg, Russia; the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam, Netherlands; and The Museum of Modern Art in New York City.

Meijer Gardens, just 14 years old at the time, was the newest institution of the 30 listed, as well as the only institution with a focus on sculpture and horticulture.
