Varied, interesting ,especially some of the more... More

Both the special exhibitions and permanent collection exhibitions were terrific. This is a great place to get to know another side of not only LA, but also southern culture. It is right behind the WWII museum, so worth a stop in if you are going there!

This museum is not for everyone; the word "southern," as applied to art, is just too vague to say anything at all. The collections and exhibits here are predominantly contemporary. I loved the outsider art exhibit. We didn't have enough time to explore fully.

Fantastic art collection combined with regular events like jazz concerts etc. Within walking distance of Canal Street, and a pleasant one as well.

Culturally important when visiting Louisiana. Informative both historically and current art. Two hours passed in a flash and still we didn't see it all. I plan to go back.

I am not a big art museum guy, but found the Ogden Museum to have some very interesting works on display. The highlights for me included a display of photography taken with Polaroid Cameras, a special exhibition entitled Basquiat and the Bayou and a number of well-known and lesser known Southern artists. The museum contained three full floors of exhibition... More

We went to the Ogden for a gallery show of a fellow artist we know. They also had a couple of other events going on and a fund raiser that night so there was a slight cover charge. But live music and wine with some snacks more than made up for the cover. We made it through 3 floors of... More
