Music Box Village is sliding scale, pay-what-you-wish for Louisiana Residents

The Music Box Village is an outdoor space and occasionally affected by inclement weather. We will close while actively raining at the site. In cases of heavy rain, we may close for the duration of the day.

Check our Facebook and Instagram accounts for more updates.

No advance ticketing is necessary
Louisiana residents enter by donation.
Suggested donation: $12 adults | $5 kids ages 3-12

The Music Box Village is a one-of-a-kind, artist-built sculpture garden – not a playground. While we welcome exploration and play, children must be supervised at all times due to the delicate nature of our instruments. Entry is at your own risk.

Friendly leashed dogs are welcome in the Village during Public Hours. Please clean up after your pets for the comfort and safety of all our guests.

We offer private event rentals! Tell us about your event here.

Public Hours By Donation!!

Our pay-what-you-wish hours do not receive corporate or governmental support –
we rely on donations from visitors and supporters like yourself.
