En Plein Air: This Summer Take Your Museum Visit Outside

A round up of six sculpture parks, abstract structures, and buildings that blend and highlight their landscape combine the best art and architecture.


History Museum of Lugo, in Spain

At Architizer we love our museums. But in the summer, with the sun and warm weather beckoning us outside, spending time inside a crowded gallery starts to feel like a chore. The solution? Outdoor (or mostly outdoor) museums! We’ve rounded up six sculpture parks, abstract structures, and buildings that blend and highlight their landscape combine the best art and architecture with the splendor of the great outdoors. See them below.
