Just outside of The Mennello Museum of American Art is The Sculpture Garden. Numerous sculptures line the paths around the garden, which merge into the Orlando Urban Trail bicycle and pedestrian path. There’s a gorgeous 350-year-old live oak tree draped with Spanish moss here, known as "The Mayor".

You can't leave the museum without stopping in the gift shop. Here you’ll find museum memorabilia, books, crafts, and jewelry. The museum is located just north of Downtown Orlando.
