We loved our hour or so here. The old plantation furniture was really interesting. Our teens even liked it. There is a scavenger hunt for younger children. They are nice Monets. There is also this great photo history of sisters over 40 years. It is interesting to see how time marches on.

Entertaining and it's located in a beautiful park! We look a public bus which was clean and safe for only $1.25 per person each way. The museum is freezing, though, so bring a jacket. There are very limited food options, so bring a sandwich to eat at the park.

NOMA is a large museum with extensive standing exhibits and wonderful visiting exhibits. Free and easy parking! Worth some time and well done, NOLA.

They call this museum NOMA and it is world-class. Allow at leads a half day and do not miss the sculpture garden right next door which is amazing and free.

NOMA is a very nice museum. I was just surprised by the size of their collections. Each style of art, specifically paintings, were maybe 4-5 pieces in the collection. Each was a great example of that style but small.

The museum is small and that might be one of the best things! You can easily get through most of the collections that you want to see in an hour or two.

NOMA has something for everyone. The rooms and displays are well laid out. I gravitated towards the old masters, of which there were two fine rooms. The best part is the Sculpture Garden, well laid out around a winding lake and worth a walk in any heat. Great for photos. The cafe is excellent with salads, and entrees and a... More

We could not have been at the NOMA at a better time. On display was Hale Woodruff's "Amistad" series. These works were painted and lived at Talladega University but have been since restored and are on the move around the US. Their permanent collections are beautifully curated. Lovely lighting, space to view but not so big one is overwhelmed. I... More

if you don't want to spend your time at the Art museum in such crazy city like NO, don't go there. But as for me, that museum is worth to go there. Collection is quiet interesting, they also have a beautiful cafe and incredible shop!( we spend a lot of money on souvenirs there!!))

Nice galleries within this museum in City Park.Quite a lot of modern art mixed with more traditional paintings.$10 admission charge makes this a rather inexpensive attraction with its' own cafe.Picasso and Degas exhibits along with many others.Spent around two hours in here during City Park visit.Behind this museum is the Sculpture Garden.
