    Surprisingly small for an art museum, but the Degas collection is worth the visit alone. Built in 1911, art ranges from Fabrege eggs to an extensive Mayan Indian collection, from Miro and Piccasso to showcased, modern photography. My favorite though is their outdoor, free, 5 acre sculpture garden.

    Located in the heart of City Park, New Orleans’ oldest fine arts institution has been opening us up to other worlds since 1911. Today, it boasts over 40,000 pieces on constant display with rotating exhibits ever changing what’s there to inspire us to create and think. And even though the admission is affordable, the adjacent 5-acre sculpture garden is a steal at the full price $FREE.99. Moreover, the Morning Call Coffee Stand just moved into the historic casino building in the park, which sits not far from the brand new, New Orleans-themed Mini Golf facility.

    This is outside the French Quarter. We got there by bus.

    The museum is not of the caliber of museums in New York City, Washington DC, Chicago or Los Angeles but it has a lot of items and enough quality to make it worth a visit. Admission is $10 for adults but we went on a Wednesday when it’s free.

    The permanent collection is spread over three floors, with strengths in French and American art, photography, and glass. There is also a substantial African and Japanese collection. The museum also houses a cafe which looked nice but we did not sample. Behind the museum building is a large sculpture garden with over 60 sculptures situated on a beautifully landscaped site.

    Beyond the museum City Park is a great place for a walk among the meandering footpaths, pedestrian bridges, reflecting lagoons, swans and Spanish moss-laden oaks, which you don’t see in the French Quarter or even the Garden District. There’s also a botanical garden which we did not visit.
