We spent the last day of our holiday here and it was wonderful.
The staff are volunteers who love their job and this is reflected in their great customer service skills.
There was a changeover of exhibits when we visited so we didn't get to see everything we had hoped, but really enjoyed it anyway.
We had lunch in the onsite restaurant and it was one of the best meals we had in a month in the USA.
Next door is the sculputure park, now we have been to many the World over, and this is the best and again FREE!
You can ride a Canal streetcar to museum and they go every 40 minutes to this destination, so even the journey is a pleasure.
WE LOVED IT!
New Orleans,

Best African Art collection we have ever seen. Sculpture gardens were great. An O'Keefe, Monet, Manet, Degas, Sargent one right after the other. Take the trolley to get there from downtown.

Visited a few times. They have great exhibits from time to time that you just can't miss! Went when they had Femme Femme, which was amazing! Wednesdays are free! So if you are looking for something to do for free this would be a great option!

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.
