Museum-wise a spoiled NYer so I was amazed at how much depth NOMA has. Definitely worth the street car ride, right out Canal (very easy: take City Park car to end, maybe 20 minutes). Went to check out the Louisiana art, found Greek antiquities, great African mask collection, Oceana, contemporary, Flemish, Roccoco, Baroque, sculpture and more. Very nicely curated -... More

Don't miss it. You can get in for free if you belong to any other major city's art museum and show your membership. They have a gorgeous John Singer Sargent portrait as well as great cafeteria.

The permanent exhibit included works from the history of New Orleans up to present day life. Every visit to a Museum is a learning experience. Take the Family for a daytime visit to the Park. There is so much more to see than what greets you at the entrance. Walk around and see the outside Sculpture Gardens located adjacent. For... More

The museum is very nice. Both the collection inside the building and the sculpture outside in the garden. The entry ticket is not very cheap.

We visit New Orleans at least once a year, and we always plan a trip to the museum. There is always a great exhibit. This trip we were able to see Degas' Little Dancer. What a treat!

Well maintained building and collections with interesting traveling exhibits. Just a good run of the mill museum with a few VERY nice pieces in the permanent collection.

My husband and I have an annual pass to NOMA and enjoy the special exhibits, the curated displays, that the history of Louisiana and New Orleans in particular is featured there. The grounds are wonderful, the location is easy access from the city. We enjoy the lake and walking path also there, it is a great place to take a... More

New Orleans is a poor town. At one time it was not, but it is now. However this museum is a very pleasant place to visit and view paintings and sculptures. Their collection of the decorative arts was surprisingly well displayed. The children's area was fun for adults as well. This museum has almost no famous works of art, but... More

This has a range of art and holds regular exhibitions. Well worth a trip out from the city on the Streetcar. The café inside also did a very good lunch.

This is a beautiful museum filled with amazing works of art. You can easily spend several hours in side and then go outside an walk among the sculptures. The food in the cafe was very good and not over priced. The local car come quickly when you call or you can take the street car.
