MUSIC BOX VILLAGE LOCATION: 4557 North Rampart Street, New Orleans 70117

Find us in the grove of trees where Rampart Street ends, at the levee in the Bywater neighborhood.


The Music Box Village is a one-of-a-kind, artist-built sculpture garden – not a playground. We require children under 16 to be accompanied by an adult at all times, with a minimum of one adult per three children due to safety concerns.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.

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

Public Hours By Donation!!

With your help, we can open the Music Box Village to all. Your support allows us to

  • maintain and grow the Village,
  • add new art and new houses,
  • and create new and surprising collaborations – and paid opportunities – for hundreds of artists, musicians, performers and more.

We need your help to make it happen. Our pay-what-you-wish hours do not receive corporate or governmental support – we rely on donations from visitors and supporters like yourself.

You can support New Orleans Airlift, the Music Box Village and our mission with a one-time or recurring donation.
