This was a first visit to NOMA in City Park. For a smaller metropolitan museum, it has a lovely permanent collection including works from Monet, Picasso and Manet, as well as intriguing small installations. Definitely worth a visit, with a very nice gift shop as well.

Well New Orleans isn't really a fine art destination. You come here for the food and the music. Best to leave it at that. The sculpture garden next door is exceptional, but the museum it's self isn't really worth the trouble. There are one or two nice pieces, but the overall impression a bit of an uncoordinated jumble. Best save... More

This is a great museum. Beautiful, great exhibits. The authentic southern-plantation parlor, with original receipts and purchase orders, is not to be missed. The Katrina Ten Years Later exhibit. The actual-size guilded log cabin with interior made of geometrically inlaid scores of common items, also guilded, is fascinating, meaningful, surprising, fun to try to identify the items (this exhibit obviously...

This is a small museum, you can see the entire collection in one visit, but well worth the trip. The museum is set in city park so if you plan well, you can do a few excursions in one day.

What an attractive building and collection. The Louisiana Parlor exhibit recreates an antebellum parlor with period furniture, art and curtains. Works of the old masters fills the walls (Manet, Monet, Picasso, Degas and others. Great assortment representing African, European, Mexican and South American art.

We parked out car at the art museum, and the time we were gone someone did a smash and grab, and took all of our stuff in the back seat. Which was worth about 700-800 dollars. Some time we had in New Orleans! If you go HIDE YOUR STUFF!!

The museum has quite good numbers of collection like Picasso and Mattisse. They separate rooms between Dutch, Italian, French and American painters (as well as era). Hence, we can clearly see different styles between them.

My wife and I went in just to have something to do to beat the heat of the mid-afternoon and this museum was close by. We were delighted to see such a variety of pieces and had a good time. The inside of the gold cabin is a must see.

All museum's collections are unique, which makes most museums worthwhile. The NOMA (inside) has a relatively small but varied collection. It doesn't take long to get through it. I enjoyed it. The NOMA sculpture garden is lovely and has what I consider to be some great works. You could easily mosey around the sculpture garden for an hour. If you're... More
