This is a wonderful way to spend an afternoon in Shreveport. While not huge, the museum offers an eclectic collection of art with a focus on American artists from a variety of eras. Even after reading all of the positive reviews on tripadvisor, I was surprised at how nice it was. The grounds are beautiful - even in February -... More

We had read that this collection was worth seeing, but were delighted to discover its scope and beauty. Although it was too cold to walk on the grounds the day that we visited (Feb. 2015), the building, itself, was tasteful and so well suited to its purpose. The Gallery is located in a lovely residential neighborhood, yet close to the... More

I really didn't know what to expect when I visited the R. W. Norton Art Gallery in Shreveport, Louisiana recently. What I was delighted and thrilled to find that this museum has a permanent collection of over 8,000 works of fine art. and is quite extensive. I was particularly interested in their American Collection which contains outstanding examples from the... More

The R.W. Norton Art Gallery and Museum in Shreveport, La. remains the top attraction in a city that offers so much for the visitor. The water walks and falls are complete now and there are so many of them, some hidden behind plants and demand attention with their bubbling sounds. The Winter plants are mysterious to our hometown garden ways... More

Looking for a place to visit over the holidays? Admission is free and the staff is excellent. Bring a little culture and education into your life. The children will love the historical displays and paintings. A true southern beauty and must see visit.

I can believe they don't charge for this. It was filled with eye candy! Oils, sculptures, prints, dolls, and guns... Beautiful landscape paintings. I actually felt hot in front of one painting of a temperature guage set at 102 degrees then a shade tree in the next pic to cool off under. Worth the trip. I promise who ever you... More

An interesting, unexpected museum with a variety of items to view: paintings, sculptures, old West, guns, dolls, native american art, tiny handpainted ceramic portraits. It's quite large and fascinating, plan for a couple of hours at least. Free parking, free entry. No gift shop. No photo's allowed, bummer. There are gardens, grounds, but we didn't have time for them.

This "gallery" is not worth the admission (which is free). While trying to appear as offering something of value, is nothing but a stuffy pretentious joke. Faux finishes to fakes copies and forgeries, I'm sure the only reason the don't let you take pictures is so real scholars and critics don't out them publicly. Thanks for the laugh.

Great facility with lots to appreciate. My wife and I are fans of art depicting scenes from the Old West, so were very pleased with the original paintings and sculptures by C.M. Russell and Frederick Remington, as well as Western landscapes by Thomas Moran, Albert Bierstadt, and painters of equal and lesser notoriety. If you are not familiar with this... More

My wife and I went here on a Thursday morning and essentially had the museum to ourselves. Firstly, it is entirely free! They don't even ask for donations or have a gift shop. Other than not being able to take photos anywhere inside or on the grounds, this museum is fantastic - truely! There is an excellent little bit of... More
