When you go to the New Orleans Museum of Art the first thing that strikes you when you walk in is the grand look of the museum. It's a lovely place and the art is a selection of new to several centuries old. Plan on spending hours admiring the vast collection of art. There is a cafe to eat lunch... More

A wonderful exhibit of painting and art from New Spain- the Spanish empire in the Americas from the Brooklyn Museum of Art's collection. Great lunch fare in the museum cafe.

We accidentally found our way to the Art Museum and were disappointed to find that it is closed on Mondays. After doing more research, there are many attractions in NOLA that are closed on Mondays. And many close at 5 or 6 pm daily.

This was a great option for a rainy day. We took the trolley all the way from the river here as thus was a great way to see New Orleans. This museum had wonderful grounds and a rather eclectic selection of regional art, I was more surprised with the large selection of Dutch and Flemish artists. The museum is reasonably... More

Rainy day in NO dictated a trip to the museum and we were very excited we did. We did cover the entire museum and statuary gardens in about 3-4 hours. The museum has a pretty good selection of works from the 15th century to current times. They do have outstanding very well known artists too (Monet, Renoir, Degas, Modigliani and... More

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
