I love this museum, perfect to spend a couple of hours. Excellent permanent collection of art and always interesting exhibits. The restaurant is very pleasant, the food delicious.Love the store and the location of the museum, practically in City Park....the Sculpture Garden is a must....
If for any reason, you are in Nola , go and visit , you will be delighted. Wednesdays are free!!!!!

“Good value, small collection”
Reviewed November 4, 2012

You really need to go out to City Park and see the beauty of the park. The sculpture garden is gorgeous & free. The museum, however, is quite small. I happened to be there while they were putting in a new display, so much of it was closed. They did, however, lower the admission price to $5 which made it worthwhile. Not a large selection of well known artists, but a decent array of art from different periods/places.

Well-prepared food in cafe. Can be reached by trolley from major hotels costing seniors $.40 one way (compared to $20 cab ride) Located in City Park providing beautiful setting for walks.

Very nice atmosphere with good soups and sandwiches for lunch. The museum itself is in City Park which has a lot to offer, including botanical gardens and sculpture. The museum has a diverse collection which ranges from Pre-Columbian to Post Impressionist. Very nicely done!
