Kids enjoyed a fast-paced stroll through this museum, but really liked the amusing sculpture garden next door. Not sure what my rating would have been on any other non-free day. We plan to return annually.

In March the NOMA hosts its annual Art n Bloom where the museum is transformed into fabulous displays of flowers. Amateur garden clubs are assigned a piece of art from which they do a competitive interpretation in flowers. There are professionals who transform tables and other rooms into creative displays. It takes place over several days, including a Gala the... More

Not too bad for a museum. Lots of history and not overly crowded so you can take the time to really look around

From El Greco to Monet, such a great collection of classical art. Renoir, Manet, Andy Warhol, and too many more to remember, 12th century to modern day, paintings, sculpture, pottery, furniture and a great cafe. Regional art to world art, I was in awe and did not expect this high quality museum in New Orleans. Time well spent on a... More

We took the street trolley to the edge of the park and then strolled by the lake to the building. The sculpture park is fantastic. Truely sparks the imagination! My favorite display inside was in a suite of paintings by Bob Dylan (yes that Bob Dylan). He presents a distinctive vision of New Orleans, a city for which he has... More

It is free, there are a lot of sculptures by many artists. Everything from the odd to ladies sitting on a park bench. It is a short walk from the streetcars and is family friendly.

The permanent collection and the temporary exhibits always engage me. And a hidden gem is the cafe with the terrific view.

I was there during a great exhibit called “The Essence of Things,” which explored the intersection of art and design in creating everyday objects. It was laid out beautifully, with interactive touch screens to walk you through the philosophy behind each group of objects. If all NOMA’s exhibits are this well curated, it’s clearly run by experts in showcasing and... 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.
