Grounds for Sculpture and Rats Restaurant are a little slice of central Jersey heaven that will indulge each one of your senses! As creative wedding designers we are always looking for unique venues and spaces to use as our next canvas. This incredible venue combination in Hamilton, NJ raises the bar.

Grounds for Sculpture is a 42-acre, landscaped garden that is adorned with over 270 modern sculptures. Renowned and emerging contemporary artists from around the world have created these amazing structures. Each piece was carefully chosen and placed throughout the beautifully manicured park, alongside the plentiful exotic trees and flowers.

Grounds for Sculpture is a great place to host special events or your wedding. There are incredible private areas to hold a wedding ceremony and their restaurant is perfect for rehearsal dinners, company outings, or just a day out with your family or friends. Their facilities regularly host classes, speakers, workshops, guided tours, team building challenges and luncheons—tons of options for any occasion!

Grounds for Sculpture is also home to six indoor galleries and rotates exhibits throughout the year.

Rats, named after the hostess character from the childhood storybook, “The Wind in the Willows”, is a unique French-style restaurant. Located alongside a whimsical lily pond, the building and interior was modeled after Claude Monet’s favorite town, Giverny.
