I was disappointed in my visit at this art museum.... the top floor is one artist that I could have totally missed and it would have been okay with me. I would not return here again and hesitate to recommend.

Definitely well worth the visit and get away from the usual touristy things whilst in NOLA. A good 10-15 walk from Canal St with the WWII museum and another museum in the same vicinity. A bit of an insight to diversity of Southern Art for this international visitor/traveller to see. The gift shop had some beautiful items on sale and... More

The prime exhibit was the series of photos of New Orleans painters' studios. Beautiful colors and shading. Some of the other exhibits were interesting, but the top floor was closed for filming. The staff was very helpful. The shop was disappointing. The Museum is opposite the WWII Museum so you can do them together.

Don't let the spare nature of the entrance of this art museum fool you-- because the building has a small footprint, it soars five stories high. In the July-September 2015 exhibition, my particular favorites were the "Self-Taught, Outsider, and Visionary art collection," "The Rising" collection of hopeful post-Katrina photographs, and Tina Freeman's photographs of artists' spaces. I wasn't expecting a... More

There is a lot of different types of art here, but not a great deal of any one type. The four floors have sculpture, oil watercolor, multidimensional works, ink drawings, etc., all by Southern artist. The admission is $10 for seniors. It was not crowded, so looking at leisure was nice. So was the AC after a couple of hours... More

I am not an art critic by any means and either like or not like what I see. The third and fourth floors I most enjoyed b/c there was a combination of more traditional work and a pictorial "Rising" of photographs taken since Hurricane Katrina. It was all very interesting and moving. The display currently on the top floor I... More

This art museum is like no other. A must-see for art enthusiasts. Stroll down Julia Street after visiting the museum for galleries and great food.
