Well laid out museum that houses my favorite artist Jean Leon Gerome. He has two paintings here. A generous mix of classical and new art, the focus on post-Katrina is touching and jarring at the same time. A very nice way to spend an hour in this great park and great city. You get to it on a street car... More

Our entire family enjoyed this museum, we spent a couple of hours inside and out enjoying the amazing works. The sculpture garden area is full of many surprises and is a beautiful and shady stroll.

I live in two big cities so don't lack for opportunities to see great art. I encourage you to take the streetcar out to this museum, if only to enjoy the magnificant sculpture garden. Do go inside and at least have a snack at the pretty little cafe. But really, you should spend an hour or two wandering the galleries... More

This is a wonderful museum! The outdoor sculpture garden is a real treat as well. Wide variety of art including photography. Top rated by my friends who have been. Gift shop and restaurant are above average.

I love museums and NOMA didn't disappoint. I wandered for hours and saw everything from Picassos to French and American art, African and Japanese works. Since the stairs were under repair, most visitors thought the third floor was closed. I took the elevator and viewed 1,000s more pieces of work basically all alone. I continued out to the Sculpture Garden... More

Very nice art museum with a good mix of contemporary and older paintings and sculpture. Courtyard cafe is very pleasant. Take the streetcar and enjoy.

While visiting City Park, take a break in the heat of the day and visit this lovely museum. It contains an incredible collection of the great masters from around the world, and excellent examples of the primitive cultures, plus the shining stars of Lousianna.

There is not much to see here for those familiar with large metropolitan art museums. There is one painting by El Greco, several works by Joan Miro and Pablo Picasso, a sculpture by Degas and a few other Impressionist paintings. The surprise was that the best works were given by Victor Kiam. Plan to spend more time in the FREE... More

I liked the art collection and the building--was a little far to get to but that was fundamentally ok!
