This week, the New Orleans Museum of Art announced the reopening of the beloved Besthoff Sculpture Garden. The outdoor art sanctuary will reopen for the first time since March on Monday, June 1, with additional hours on Tuesday, June 2.
Following June 2, the garden will be open to visitors Wednesday through Sunday, with free admission for Museum members. Adult tickets will now be $5; seniors, military, and university students will now pay $3; and visitors 19 years and under are free. Healthcare workers and first responders will receive free admission through the end of 2020.
The garden, which features over 90 pieces of art, will remain at 25% capacity. Markings on the grounds and around sculptures will ensure visitors stand six feet apart, and face masks will be required. The museum requests that visitors come alone or with those from your household.
