Best of New Hampshire: Andres Institute of Art

The integration of art and nature, nothing is more delightful than an outdoor sculpture park! Andres Institute of Art [98 NH-13, Brookline, NH 03033] is the largest outdoor sculpture park in New England, and it is free to visit. There is an excellent trail map in the parking lot which will help you to see all of the special nooks and crannies within the winding paths, and lists the name of each piece of art. You can spend hours here roaming the miles of wooded trails interpreting the unique and interesting sculptures created by artists from all over the world.
