NOMA showcases the city's rich heritage for fine and decorative arts. Located in City Park, one of the oldest parks in the U.S., the museum is reached through avenues of moss laden oaks. The entrance to the museum is guarded by a beautiful equestrian sculpture of favorite son, PGT Beauregard. Find the Fabarge room and be amazed at the exquisite... More

This was a very credible museum with a good selection of art work. It is particularly good as part of an afternoon out of the French quarter. We took the Canal Street trolly to the cemeteries, unique to New Orleans, then walked to and through City Park to get to the Museum. There is even a café in the park... More

The collection isn't large, but it is more than adequate. The Congo exhibit is quite informative. Covered almost one full floor. The gold log house by Ryman is truly the highlight for adults & children alike. See how many different items you can pick out! You could be there for hours!!! Worth every penny of the admission!

Must see the Ryman gold log house made of iPhones, keyboards, coal, cotton, pills, railroad ties and has shackles on the floor. Also the Kongo exhibition is a must-see if you're there before it ends May 25. Otherwise enjoy the collection including the Marie-Antoinette portrait and the Miros/ Rauschenberg Five etc.

The lovely building houses a small collection with few real masterpieces, but you'll find something to enjoy (for us it was the indigenous art of the Americas). The outdoor sculpture garden is especially enjoyable.

One of the nicest set of galleries around. It's not the grandest of collections (in terms of size) but the pieces are very broad in scope and representative of many cultures. It's got a good cross section of styles and epochs. Worth a couple of hours. Also, the café is very good.

Beautiful collection of more primitive art/artifacts on up to modern art! The Civil War photos exhibit was wonderful as well.

Great collection in a lovely building. We arrived too late to sample the delights of the cafe but it looked great. Just the right size to see everything without exhaustion. Unfortunately we could not see the sculpture park but would have liked to. Only drawback is the longish walk from the bus stop. One volunteer actually gave us a lift... More

Was extremely disappointed to have taken the Canal / City Park Streetcar here from our hotel near the French Quarter for it to be closed with no explanation - no signage and no posted / updates on their holiday hours on their website either. Having made a special trip - which took 30 minutes in length on the street car... More

What a lovely museum! It was a great way to spend a day away from the chaos and crowds of New Orleans. We were staying the French Quarter and found that area dirty and chaotic, so it was such a relief to take the streetcar on a 30 minute trip to a beautiful and secluded park. The museum is at...
