While killing some time before my flight, I ventured into this museum. The pieces on display provided a a variety of emotions. Seriously, the small collection of religious art was very humbling, and the pieces from Japan and China were inspiring. I just wish I were in town during the upcoming Mardi Gras weekend-long display. It sounds like it would... More

Hell I wouldn't know but my art buddies in New Orleans who have Piccassos and Dugas in their hallways say it is a wonderful museum. I liked it better when you could have luch out there. It is right by the Tennis center so if you are here for a summer tournament great place to beat the heat

Our visit was extremely pleasant; the museum is very well kept and the bathrooms were so clean it was as if no one had ever used them. The mix of art was very pleasing and made us want to go back through a few areas twice. The museum staff were extremely friendly and were fairly knowledgeable regarding some of the... More

The way security at this museum follows people, stares, and hounds is ridiculous! It is impossible to enjoy or even give much thought about a piece of art when you are the only one in the gallery and the guards physically walk behind you and stand while you look. Seriously?? Do you think that I am going to rip the... More

We visited on Memorial Day weekend. We saw that the admission was reduced on the website, but we missed the explanation about the second floor being closed for renovations. So, if you are visiting in summer 2014, just note that you aren't going to get to see everything. We enjoyed what we did see and were glad that we went.... More

We spent two hours here recently. I think that is enough time. Add a few minutes to look at the excellent and well displayed gift shop. This shop looks more like a MET or Whitney Museum gift shop than a small town regional art museum gift shop. It is very good! The collection is very large (building has 95.000 sq... More
