The museum itself is an impressive building and it contains an interesting range of exhibitions (including temporary ones). However, the *free* sculpture garden is the absolute highlight and well worth spending time walking around - go early to avoid the heat!

So much to see here. Admission is $10.50, discounted for kids and seniors, free with military ID (and can take up to 4 guests). There are a wide variety of collections, and the stories posted with each are wonderful. Free internet, too!

Some of the exhibits here were well put together and nice, but a lot of it just wasn't that special. Might be more impressive if you haven't seen a lot of art before.

An afternoon well spent. The museum is well organized and has a very good display of art. Packing is plenty. The sculpture garden is a few minutes walk from the museum.

We were a little disappointed that the great majority of the art offered was modern. We did find a few pieces of European art that we liked, especially some of Bougereaux's works.

What a treasure to have here in New Orleans! A trip to city park is not complete without a visit to the Art Museum! (Plus it's air conditioned which is a welcome relief in the summer after exploring the park). I always find unique gifts for friends and family in their gift shop and recommend it to all visitors looking... More

Excellent experience. Lots of things to enjoy from all genres of art. Contemporary and modern as well as ancient art. We were there for the Bob Dylan display which was wonderful. Wonderful descriptions for each piece of art. Cafe and gift shop were well stocked.

The space is GORGEOUS. I found the permanent collection to be a knockout, but the temporary exhibitions less so (Bob Dylan’s paintings: eh, he should stick to writing music. I wished the Vitra show had been more substantial; the Vera Lutter photos were very interesting.) The Besthoff Sculpture Park is wonderful, give yourself plenty of time to meander around, even...

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.
