“Brilliant!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2014

We had a wonderful stroll around the sculpture park with its wonderful landscaping and fantastic range of exhibits. It's well worth going to the art gallery and then slipping out to see the sculpture. The park can be reached on the Canal Street streetcar, which every visitor should ride on. You can pay on the bus but will need the right change.

“Wonderful sculpture garden! ”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2014

Great to just walk through the park and look at all the beautifully maintained sculptures from around the world. Be sure to bring a camera since there are many photo ops here.

“Do not miss this gem!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2014

A wide variety of sculptural treasures from classic to ultramodern beautifully displayed in a restful setting within a few steps of a Brennan restaurant in the New Orleans Museum of Art. Plan your visit so you can do both and perhaps the Botanical Garden as well.

“What a glorious outdoor museum!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 31, 2013

We were absolutely thrilled to stumble onto the sculpture garden. Gorgeous landscaping and world class sculpture collection. Sublime setting and so very well done. And, free! Unbelievable!
