New Orleans Museum of Art (NOMA), in the middle of picturesque city park, is a real gem, with an amazing scultor garden adjacent to it. Besides more of the usual items, it also has exceptional non-Western pieces from Edo-period Japan, Oceanic, and African.

There are so many wonderful things to say about this museum and its visiting and permanent collections. This is an incredible facility with a fairly recently created date-night opportunity featuring hours, dining, and music every Friday after 5. That said, my concern is that there seems to be some confusion among skateboarding and scootering young people regarding the use of... More

The center piece of the museum is the portrait of Marie Antionette, very nice. My favorite was the American exhibit with the emphasis on Louisiana art. There was a piece of the Bronx squeezed in with turn of the century painting of Highbridge as well

On a Sunday afternoon we visited the New Orleans Museum of Art, commonly referred to as NOMA. Prior to entering the museum, we walked around the Besthoff Sculpture Garden; this is an exceptionally well done park. The special exhibit at the museum is “Behind Closed Doors: Art in the Spanish American Home”; this exhibit, organized by the Brooklyn Museum, highlights... More

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
