Fabulous museum and gardens right on the Park Ave. bus line. Free for educators! (Thank you Dixon!). Loved the misters out in the garden, and plenty of shade in the gardens.

I love to go here and get out of the hustle and bustle of the day. The permanent collection is serene and masterful with its extensive collection of French impressionist. On warm days the gardens will take away all your stress!

I don't think so. When we were there, I asked if the grounds stayed open after the museum closes at 5; I was told no. Might be worth a call to them though
