REVIEWS OF World's Largest Concrete Gnome IN Iowa

Chuck Hoehn

Elwood is located inside Rieman Gardens on the Iowa State campus near the football stadium. It is a beautiful, relaxing place to visit. You can walk through the butterfly habitat. You wind through beautiful outdoor gardens as you make your way back to Elwood. Expansions and improvements are underway. If you are in Ames, Iowa this is definitely worth a visit.

The gardens were beautiful and the gnome was a fun secret

It cost us $22 for a family of 4. It was a good price for everything we got to see and do. Beautiful photo opportunities. Recommended for families.

Alexis Finke

The gardens around the gnome are beautiful and it's nice to see people enjoying everything. When we went it wasn't very crowded so we really took our time. It's a great place for a photoshoot

Kind of over rated. Not that big or cool looking. Also hard to find and get near.

So beautiful!

Ryan Tellberg

Dude...if you like gnomes ..you have to meet Elwood he's the biggest freaking gnome on the planet. He may not be one for conversation but he is cool with taking photos with people. I wish the gift shop had some Elwood specific items to sell like shot glasses or mini Elwood figures...but all in all meeting Elwood was awesome and the gardens there were beautiful.

Bob Newbury

Kevin McClain

He's huge

Leigh McD

not actually the largest gnome, largest gnome resides in nanoose bay, bc, CANADA....

Matt Hicks

The gnome is novel and entertaining. Check out the Reiman butterfly wing nearby.

Jami Levendusky

Was fun to visit and it was the first time Brad looked small.

David Williams

I was not expecting the butterfly arboretum. The gardens, statues and grounds were better than I had expected. We got lots of good information and ideas for our own gardens at home.

Paul Nygren

Worth the trip to Ames.

Murry Meyer

Surprisingly fun

Frank DeLorenzo

Located within a botanical garden, it is really big.

Robert Atzeni

Rainy day and in area for concert a good time killer and a few pics. I thought it was pretty cool. Admission is what it is being privately funded. Do complain just enjoy notice some cheap visitors complaining of the entrance fee get real nothing is free anymore.

Scott Forsythe

Elwood the Gnome is a hilarious touch to a stunning location, and finding him takes you through a storybook landscape with plenty to see.

Bruce Chapin

He resides in a beautiful garden on the Iowa State campus.

Chuck Zinda

We just wanted a photo, but you had to pay $8 admission to the university gardens to see it.

Hip Hopgal

To the person who wrote the review saying its not the largest......they state its the largest concrete gnome and the one you refer to, is the largest scrap metal gnome. I’m team Elwood all the way.

Bigger than I even expected

Mitch Solberg

It's one of those things where you go,"why does this exist?"

Adam Hintz

It adds so much character to the gardens, definitely a must see in Ames! It's included in the admissions to the gardens and butterfly exhibit. The gardens take a few hours to walk through, it's worth the $8 admission! (Free with student ID as well!)

John Hsieh

How are there so many negative reviews for our beloved Elwood?!?! This is just simply unacceptable! Yes, Elwood is located inside Reiman Gardens, and yes, that means a $9 admission price (current 2018 prices) for the public. If you want to see Elwood for free, get an ISU ID or look at all of his posted pictures (one's posted here from me). To my knowledge, Elwood still holds the record for being the world's largest concrete gnome, and he is pretty friggin' big.

The world's largest garden gnome happens to be in an amazing botanical garden with a large butterfly house. Go to see the gnome, stay for the delight of the rest of the place.
