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

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 was bored and the security guards make you feel uncomfortable. The cashier gives you a map to download on your phone but you have security on every floor watching you like a hawk as if you're going to take pictures. I'll never return.

If you live in a city with an art museum, this may be smaller than most, but they have a variety of everything from primitive cultures to Native American to Asian to Renaissance to Impressionism and Modern Art. There are some unique wonders here. And it is connected to the amazing sculpture garden and City Park, so why not?

The NOMA in The City Park was worth a visit. They had a lovely collection of pieces, but it was not a large collection. Include this art museum as part of you visit to The City Park. We enjoyed the beigner's at the Morning Coffee Café, then strolled the sculpture Garden ,the Botanical Garden, then lunch in the NOMA and... More

It is a wonderfully laid out and very find museum. However, the high point for me was the very small Impressionist Gallery holding some of the most wonderful pieces from Monet and Pissarro and Cassatt I've seen anywhere. What a treat!

Nice museum, they had a great exhibition about Kongo. Good display and very educational. Many other displays including Dutch and Flemish painters. Very accessible by street car, and a 5 - 10 minutes walk.

Although our docent seemed to think we were all school kids, she was informative and knew her subjects. Worth a visit, especially on a hot or rainy day.

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
