Ok... it's a "modern art museum". However... some areas could be rated XXX. On one floor, I had not seen SO MANY human PENISES since gym class - in high school! This was down-right X RATED. They should have had WARNING signs! Do NOT take your school on a "Field Trip" here. I enjoy modern art, however; this was just... More

I spent a couple of hours here. They have a nice variety of art, it is inexpensive and the staff is friendly. Easy to get to and right next to the WWII museum and Civil war museum. Be sure to visit the coffee shop and book store across the street.

Top to bottom, the museum is great to view local - ish artists. Very manageable, you can view 3-4 different exhibits. Like to revisit every few months!

Nice building - a tad small on gallery space, though. Could use more artwork for price of admission. 5th Floor Gallery currently closed.

I've been to New Orleans several times and on a recent visit, was thoroughly impressed after stumbling across "the Ogden." An incredible collection of uniquely Southern art that made for a wonderful afternoon. Highly recommended!

Three floors of exhibits ranging from graffiti art to sculpture. Interesting photography exhibit as well. This is a good side visit when going to the WWII museum. Next door in the museum of the confederacy which was closed the two days I tried to visit. Have lunch at Cochon butcher.

We thought the displays were reasonably presented but limited in scope. There should have been more educational content for each gallery and artist.

My daughter and I went to the museum as an alternative to the World War II museum because we wanting a less intense experience. We enjoyed the wide variety of art pieces and perspective of major artists from around the south. We enjoyed our experience and would definitely go again. The quality of the art and the setting was just... More

We stopped in at the Ogden Museum of Art during White Linen Night & found awesome exhibits house in an Architecture gem. The Ogden is not a big museum, but it packs a punch. The interior is relaxing and top floor patio allows for a beautiful view of the city

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.
