This was my third visit to this museum and every time I go I like it more and more. The exhibits are world class, the sculpture garden is magnificent and the museum is just the right size. Every visitor to New Orleans should spend time away from the French Quarter and take the streetcar out to the museum. It's much... More

NOMA was just big enough to have a diverse collection; there was a little something for everybody, no matter what type of art you like. The building itself is gorgeous, as are the grounds, which include the sculpture garden that is worth strolling through a time or two. I was happy to find some names that I knew, discover some...

We took the street car from our hotel to City Park and it is a quick walk to the museum. Before going in we ventured through the sculpture garden, botanical garden and story land. The park itself is so clean and amazing. What a wonderful spot in the city. We have a patron pass at the Seattle Art Museum which... More

not too big of collection but a few highlights: the imperial Russian objects and Juan Miro were my favorites. Interesting architecture too. Very good cafe (best lunch for whole trip). Also the ride on streetcar to get there was an adventure in itself.

I loved this museum as a student and then later as an art teacher in Louisiana. The exhibits are well lit and presented in such a way that its a time travel experience from one floor to the other. The asian collection on the top floor is my favorite and flows nicely into the other exhibits and the museum often... More

The museum was smaller than other big city art museums but did a good job of having a variety of art from different time periods. We also enjoyed the museum restaurant (very good food).

The featured exhibit wasn't something I'd pay to go see specifically, but overall it was a nice way to spend a couple hours getting some culture. There were a few pieces that were truly unique and some very old pieces there also.

My head was spinning shortly after going in here. Too much stuff going on. Too many different types of art and too many historic periods of art ( modern to prehistoric ). I thought the adjacent sculpure garden was simpler, better and it's also free ; so maybe go there instead of inside to the museum ( the NOMA entrance... More

Lukas and I stayed on for four extra days and nights after the second weekend of Jazz Fest. The Museum of Art was something I wanted to explore. We took the Canal Streetcar out to City Park. The streetcar line ends right in front of the museum. It is quite a trek from where you are dropped off to the... More
