How can I start, it is breath taking and eclectic art collections. You walk through the XVIII century historical, French, Spanish influences via the Indians to meet with modern art. It is limitless joy with an amazing roof-top. Simply beautiful.

If you are an art lover, you should not avoid this place. There is a lot to see there. The exhibitions are really informative, staff is really kind and the price is really affordable.

Special care should be taken to visit the self taught art and Japanese art exhibition areas- both a speciality of this gem venue.

Come here to stay cool on a steamy day. Enjoy a fabulous collection. And make sure to go to the sculpture gardens just behind the museum building.

This museum is not talked about enough in the guidebooks for New Orleans. There was an interesting mix of work in the museum, I particularly liked the modern art exhibit. You can get the streetcar right there to City Park. City Park itself was worth...More

Only reason it's not a 5 is that I'm comparing it to others like the MET in NY or deYoung in SF. It is a very nice place

Much much larger than I thought it would be great art work that includes classic to modern . Wonderful little cafe that overlooks some of the grounds

NOMA can be a highlight of your day; I combined it with a street car ride and a stroll through the city park. The collection is very impressive for a museum of this size.

Lakeview extends inland from the shores of Lake
Pontchartrain with much of the area reserved for
family-friendly City Park. Home to the New Orleans
Museum of Art, the Besthoff Sculpture Garden, Carousel
Gardens Amusement Park, and the city’s own lush
Botanical Gardens, City Park is a New Orleans gem and
the perfect spot for outdoor fun with as much of a mix
of culture and/or amusement as you would like. Beyond
