From our perspective, only about 25% of the art on display was worth seeing. Somehow it felt incomplete.

Outstanding collection of art of the south - southern artists, scenes of the south, those who love the south and must depict it...in the lively museum district across the street from the Contemporary Arts Center and around the corner from the encyclopedic WW2 Museum...don't miss the Ogden!

Lots of nice art on display. Well organized with many different mediums and types. A short walk west of Canal. Well worth the trip if you're into Southern art.

I loved the museum, especially the outsider art. The rude kid at the desk selling tickets on Monday was a jerk. Once past his snippy attitude, I enjoyed the collection. Note to those in charge, he needs public service training or another job. And I am normally generous with praise...

It was a nice relaxing date event to go to. I felt that the Art set up could flow better. The Graffiti art leads you to a staircase that leads no where, making you think you were ripped off and that there's nothing else. Then as we walked back to the front desk someone directed us upstairs. We visited the... More

This is a great, small museum that highlights Louisiana art. We were there on a Monday morning & were the only visitors. They have a very diverse collection of art, including a collection of outsider art.

Staying in Arts District / Warehouse District

Neighborhood Profile
Arts District / Warehouse District
Once a thriving industrial zone, today this district is home to a buzzing arts scene with an amazing assortment of galleries, boutiques, and studios having moved in and set up shop throughout the disused warehouses for which the area is so well known. Much of the art you'll come across here is local in scope, ownership and inspiration. However, among the many old brick warehouses are modern structures of steel and glass housing large-scale cultural institutions of national prominence such as the National World War II Museum, the Contemporary Arts Center, and the Ogden Museum of Southern Art. Just as eye catching as what’s on view inside the galleries and museums is the chance to see your ship come in at the Julia Street Cruise Terminal, which serves as a wistful reminder of the city’s historic maritime prominence.
