If you are visiting the city, this is a peaceful respite from the hot, crowded French Quarter. Perfect for just a small taste of Art and Culture. Unless you are an Art expert, one hour is about all the "pass through" time to view everything in the museum. The park is lovely. The museum visit is inexpenseve; and has an onsight cafe. The Park offers several playground areas for children. There is also an outdoor sculpture garden and botanical gardens. I am not sure if these attractions are offered year round, but we went this weekend and also rented bicycles. Paddle boats and canoes were available for rent.
