Great place to kill an hour or two.

Very enjoyable! Free entry with a hotel voucher! Next to the WWII Museum and a couple of others museums .

This museum is worth your money and your time. It's full of thought provoking, beautifully displayed art. It is a southern art museum with mostly contemporary pieces. You'll have a great time exploring this four-story museum.

This is one of the preeminent museums in the south. Allocate at least 2 hours for a visit here, and be sure to eat at Mother's!

Located near WWII Museum, the Ogden offers an eclectic collection of regional in a lovely display space. Most of the collection is 20th century and later, ranging from mid-century landscapes to "outsider art" to a current display on post-Katrina art in the city. Well worth a visit.

What a wonderful and plentiful collection of art. The personal reflections from post-Katrina Memory Bank were moving. The Links sponsored show from local art students was dynamic. We stayed for hours though it seems like just a few minutes.

This gem of a museum is an excellent introduction to Southern Art, with thoughtful attention to contemporary, live artists. Of special note, Thursday's Program "Ogden After Hours" features live music in the atrium entrance hall. From forgotten R& B legends to Cajun bands, songwriters and musicians of the American music scene, the Ogden offers visitors the opportunity to discover music... More

I'm currently minoring in art history so this trip was exciting for me at the get go. My father however, doesn't know too much about what goes behind the process of creating art. BUT he loved it!! I was nervous that I would drag him to an art museum he has no interest in, but I was pleasantly surprised! We... More

People visit New Orleans usually for music and food and architecture but I didn't realize that New Orleans has a great visual arts scene, both in museums and galleries. The Ogden Museum of Southern Art was a particular revelation. It made me see that the South is almost a country unto itself.

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.
