This open-air gallery of the New Orleans Museum of Art showcases a broad range of three-dimensional artwork in the beautifully landscaped Mid-City park. Meandering paths lead guests through the eclectic sculpture collection featuring classics from Rodin and Magritte to a towering Oldenburg safety pin. Landscapers used the park's natural beauty as a foil for the artwork—many of the pieces are tucked away in manicured hedgerows and framed by centuries-old oaks or stark reflecting pools and ponds. Families looking for energy-burning activities should consider an afternoon in the garden—there's plenty of running room for kids in between the masterworks.—Pableaux Johnson
