I'm a lover of just about all things Southern, so I knew I wanted to check out this museum. It was well worth the $10 admission fee. I believe that the exhibits change throughout the year, so the ones I liked the most may not be there in a few months, but who knows, maybe even better ones will take their place.
One of the photography exhibits was so amusing (these were photos taken by the artist in the 1970's and 1980's and then described by the artist), that I had to try to keep down my laughter so as to not disturb the other patrons (who didn't seem to find anything nearly as funny as I did).
There were several other exhibits that I loved, as well as some that I felt pretty neutral about. Most of the pieces exhibited were 20th century, and a few were outsider art (this definitely is not a museum specializing in outside art), but some of the permanent collection is 19th Century, mostly Louisiana landscapes and portraits of Louisiana people.
The young woman who took my admission fee was very helpful, and asked me on my way out what I thought of the place. I told her I agreed with her recommendations about which were the best things to see.
