What a lovely museum! It was a great way to spend a day away from the chaos and crowds of New Orleans. We were staying the French Quarter and found that area dirty and chaotic, so it was such a relief to take the streetcar on a 30 minute trip to a beautiful and secluded park. The museum is at...

I had a lot of fun walking around the giant museum and looking at some Monet and Picasso paintings. Lots of cool things to look at.

Enjoyed the variety of exhibits that are tastefully displayed. On the third floor, liked the native American exhibits, but found the other sections rather prosaic. Much wanted to see the special photography exhibition, but this is more for those well versed in the world of clever, abstract techniques that we found hard to relate to. Also on the second floor...

This museum is very nice display around lots of sculpture. Some sculpture is very very nice.It's worth the whole trip even if you have to pay to get in, but it's a free outdoor museum. We had a great time spend a afternoon there.

The New Orleans Museum of Art (NOMA) if a lovely institution with a very pleasant setting in the New Orleans City Park. The collection has a nice mixture of modern and classical art (as well as a fine cafe), but the gem at NOMA is the compact, wonderful sculpture garden. The Garden is set around small lakes in the Park... More

This is a fairly small gallery but beautifully laid out and well worth a visit. It;s a really interesting collection. Coming out from the French Quarter, the City Park seemed a world away so worth it just to see such a different side to the city.

Definitely worth making a trip out here to spend a morning or afternoon. Very easy to get to on the Canal Line Streetcar (It’s the last stop). The collection is well rounded, but my favorite part was the beautiful sculpture garden. The little cafe had pretty good food. City Park itself is also very pretty and nice for sitting by... More

Museum is in a great setting in a large park surrounded by lakes. Nice collection of art. A little bit of major European artists. Beautiful building. Very nice cafe. You can take the Canal Street team from the French Quarter to get to the museum.

The setting of the museum in City Park is divine, and she's a grand building to be sure. The Sculpture Garden is really wonderful and maybe its best feature these days. Maybe a renovation is pending of which I am unaware, but inside needs a pick up. There are fabulous treasures in this museum for a city of NOLA's size.... More

City Park is a real treasure and the crown jewel is its art museum. Many of the exhibited works of art are truly thought-provoking and inspirational. We were fortunate to be in New Orleans at a time Degas' Little Dancer on view. It was wonderful to see the hand drawings on the walls surrounding the resulting sculpture. Another recent exhibit...
