Top ways to experience The Sydney and Walda Besthoff Sculpture Garden at NOMA and similar attractions

The area
Address
Neighborhood: Lakeview
Lakeview extends inland from the shores of Lake Pontchartrain with much of the area reserved for family-friendly City Park. Home to the New Orleans Museum of Art, the Besthoff Sculpture Garden, Carousel Gardens Amusement Park, and the city’s own lush Botanical Gardens, City Park is a New Orleans gem and the perfect spot for outdoor fun with as much of a mix of culture and/or amusement as you would like. Beyond City Park more great excuses to stay outside beckon, whether on land or by boat. Developed a good deal later than most other New Orleans neighborhoods, Lakeview has a distinctively different look and feel compared to other parts of the city. Fans of mid century modern design and contemporary architecture particularly enjoy leisurely drives around the residential streets of Lake Vista, Park Island and along Lakeshore Drive.

I was blown away by this fabulous outdoor display of sculptures. I have gone several times bringing new people with me each time. It's a wonderful hidden gem that I recommend to both locals and tourists alike

A real treat in one of our favorite cities!
May 2021
We loved the Museum of Art but we really loved the sculpture garden. What a treat! Very impressively laid out among huge old trees and lovely landscaping. Each piece was perfectly situated. Easy access, too, on streetcar!

The Best!

The only thing that we can say is – wow! We very much enjoyed the sculptures on display in this garden, but we were most impressed with the natural beauty surrounding this place. We enjoyed the trails, the streams, the bridges, and the Spanish moss trees. We really haven’t visited any place quite like it. This is a great place to spend a few hours with family and friends. Highly recommend!

Very interesting and well organized sculpture garden, with several very good pieces. Much better than the mainnmuseum itself! Catch the trolley bus out to City Park to reach it easily

If you have the time this is a nice stroll. $5 to get in. Spent just under an hour in the sculptures.

What a find!
May 2021
Our hosts recommended the sculpture garden, and it was wonderful. The park itself is gorgeous and the sculptures range from the whimsical to the deeply thought-provoking. Do this and then grab a bite and a drink in the museum cafe'.

A well designed sculpture garden
May 2021 • Family
Mixed modern and classical sculptures throughout the garden. It is part of the city park. For sculpture garden only it costs $5 per person. A beautiful garden. We enjoyed walked around about 1.5 miles. There is a Cafe Du Monde in the park. Great for a break after the walk.

An easy, shaded stroll surrounded by world renowned art... does it get any better? What a great treasure in the middle of City Park.

Nice way to connect with nature and art.
Apr 2021 • Couples
The sculptures are situated within its own part of City Park. It took us a few hours to walk through the well laid out and maintained gardens. The waterway feature was a nice addition.

A relaxing short walk
Jan 2021
We went to the park for the Christmas light show and had a little time to kill. We spent about an hour walking around the sculpture garden and took some fun pictures. It was a relaxing walk but didn't hold our teenage kids attention for very long.
