The sculpture garden is one of my favorite spots in the city. It has recently expanded and is a free cultural experience.

The museum advertised Degas and there was only 1 painting and 1 sculpture. Told there were impressionist works and only saw a few. There were a lot from the baroque period, which was enjoyable. The sculpture garden looked huge on the map but it was...More

The museum is a nice 2 hours experience with some great exhibits and the sculpture garden definitely worth a 1 hour walk, cool art works surrounded with Louisiana nature.
