New Orleans Sculpture Garden

There is a hidden gem behind the New Orleans Museum of Art in the Sydney and Walda Besthoff Sculpture Garden that occupies approximately five acres in City Park adjacent to the museum. The sculpture garden is open and free to the public seven days a week. There is even a free audio tour that can be accessed through visitor’s cell phones.

The garden is divided by a pond on tree lined paths and is a beautiful place to visit and see over 64 sculptures from artists like Fernando Botero, Antoine Bourdelle, Arman, Henry Moore, Deborah Butterfield and many more.

I spent some time in the garden before my visit to the museum today after an Uber driver insisted I take a walk through it before I visited the museum. New Orleans has some of the friendliest Uber drivers I have ever come across and they are always happy to recommend a great restaurant or place to visit to see the sites of the city.
