As other reviewers have pointed out, pound for pound, the New Orleans Museum of Art, commonly referred to as NOMA, is one of the best museums we've visited in the nation. It's small enough to visit in an hour or so. You can take a streetcar from the Quarter, but if you have a car, there is easy access to... More

Fit the museum into our busy schedule and very glad we did. Pound for pound, one of the best museums in the nation. Small enough to take in some remarkable pieces in about an hour, and easy access parking. Love it!

i always plan a stop at the museum. Just entering the doors brings me "home." The collection invites inspection and the gift shop is where I have collected some favorite things. A glass of cold white wine and a great snack or lunch in the contemporary restaurant is a nice break from the food circus that we all love in... More

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

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
