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.

Interesting museum in a very beautiful contemporary building. I wished I had had more than the two hours I was there. Accessible from the St Charles Trolley.

My husband and i are lovers of contemporary art so as part of our trip to NOLA we visited the art district. We began at the Contemporary Art Collection and then crossed the street to view the Ogden Museum. We were drawn by the opportunity to view the paintings of Tennessee Williams but engaged by the whimsical collection in the... More

When in New Orleans, don't overlook the Ogden Museum of Southern Art. You'll see a wonderful collection of regional pieces. The museum is not crowded and you can take you time going through.

We were so glad that we decided to stop in to the Ogden Museum of Southern Art. Room after room, filled with a fascinating collection of contemporary and historical works by Southern artists. There are paintings, sculpture, mixed media, works by known artists (including paintings by Tennessee Williams) and outsider artists. So glad we didn't miss this.

Like others I was really surprised at how much I enjoyed this museum. The exhibits we saw were eye opening, and thought provoking. Jim Roche/Cultural Mechanic in particular -his work is both provocative (his take on roadside crosses) whimsical (Loch Ness Mama) and autobiographical (maps of his motorcycle courses driven), the Candy Chang "before I die" wall outside, and Benny...
