The NOMA makes a good tourist attraction in NOLA. It houses a variety of permanent exhibits, my favorites being the Impressionists. When we were there, we saw Paul Allen's private collection, which was a highlight. The outdoor sculpture garden is a must-see.

I loved NOMA! I spent the best 4 hours in New Orleans there. The size of the museum is perfect because you can walk the whole building and admire an excellent collection without getting tired. The way the pieces of art are displayed is amazing and don't forget to visit the sculptures garden.

Spend an hour strolling through the sculpture garden next to the New Orleans Museum of Art. The design allows visitors to view each sculpture in isolation so as to provide the greatest visual impact. The path meanders around ponds and pools and trees and over bridges. Around every bend is a surprise. You must visit Karma for a singular experience.

Large, well maintained museum in a large, popular park. The museum features collections of various periods of art, with an emphasis on local art.

Until mid-January, the museum is showing the outstanding Paul Allen collection of landscapes. It contains some real masterpieces worthy in any of the world's great museums. The permanent collection is somewhat ht or miss. I would rate it at three to four stars.

We always like to check out local museums when we are visiting a new city, if time allows. The museum stays open late some nights, which made it possible for us to squeeze in a quick stop. Unfortunately, we were using public transit and by the time of day we made it there, the bus was only running once an... More

There's a nice cafe and a well sized shop within the building and your entrance in gives you free access to the Sydney... More

This was my first visit to the museum and my tenth visit to New Orleans. I'm really glad I went. The museum collection is amazing. We wandered for hours and never got tired of looking at the art. After touring inside, we went to the sculpture garden. It was the best sculpture garden I've ever seen. They have a path... More

Staying in Lakeview

Neighborhood Profile
Lakeview
Lakeview extends inland from the shores of Lake Pontchartrain with much of the area reserved for family-friendly City Park. Home to the New Orleans Museum of Art, the Besthoff Sculpture Garden, Carousel Gardens Amusement Park, and the city’s own lush Botanical Gardens, City Park is a New Orleans gem and the perfect spot for outdoor fun with as much of a mix of culture and/or amusement as you would like. Beyond City Park more great excuses to stay outside beckon, whether on land or by boat. Developed a good deal later than most other New Orleans neighborhoods, Lakeview has a distinctively different look and feel compared to other parts of the city. Fans of mid century modern design and contemporary architecture particularly enjoy leisurely drives around the residential streets of Lake Vista, Park Island and along Lakeshore Drive.
