This is a VERY small museum and the top floor was closed. Their collection is extremely limited. Be sure that they have a special event before you go, otherwise it takes 10 minutes to see the entire collection.

if you're looking for Southern art, this is of course the place to be. There are some excellent pieces in the collection but it is a very small museum. It would be great paired up with a couple museums nearby, such as the WWII museum.

The Ogden is such a great museum with new exhibitions opening often. I got a membership and love taking my guests here or just popping by when I have a few minutes (or a few hours) spare. The Ogden has a variety of art mediums and really shows the eclectic and broad scope of Southern art. It's beautifully curated and... More

I got the chance to attend a party held by the Ogden. The art work was wonderful and well displayed. The information was easy to find, and the neighborhood is safe and full of cool restaurants and shops. They have a lovely roof top deck that was open at night for the party. So I am not sure its a...

This museum is just the right size to give you a feel for a wide variety of art styles without going on forever. It's 4 medium sized floors with about 4 gallery rooms on each. Most artists are 1960 and later with a smattering of earlier artists. The artists come from all over the south, not just Louisiana. Some are... More

Don't miss the opportunity to be amazed! The collections are eclectic! The artists bring another side of the art and culture of the south! Gift shop, while little was awesome! A rare find!

If you love art, particularly Southern artists, then do not skip visiting the Ogden. The exhibits are always wonderful and the collection is fabulous. Easy to find and park and a small but well stocked gift store in the lobby.

Modern building near the WW II Museum, filled with southern art - ranging from modern to classic. Self guided and well worth 90 minutes out of your day!

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.
