Next to the museum is a large collection of sculpture in a garden setting, very photogenic and from a range of artists, worth a visit

Located rather out of the centre, the best way to get there is by tram - sorry, streetcar. On the day of our visit - the day after Hurricane Nate - it opened a couple of hours later than scheduled, giving us the opportunity to...More

I loved the wide variety of paintings in this museum and the large number of artists represented. When you visit, be certain to allow extra time to also walk through the spectacular sculpture garden outside.

After promising to go to the art museum for many years, we finally made it on our recent trip. Very glad we did. While not an really big place, or a really big collection of anything, this museum has an excellent breadth of art styles/periods...More

What a collection! Don't miss it. The sculpture garden is wonderful also with sculptures that seemed an integral part of the surroundings (Donald Judd would have been happy had his work been displayed with such consideration—but then we wouldn't have the Chinati Foundation at Marfa).

The halls that were the most interest for us, like Japanese art, we closed. Impressionists were presented by very few artists. Most of the collection is modern conceptual art, photography and random collection of furniture. Not worth the visit.

Most of the art is Dutch Renaissance, contemporary, and modern. There's only one room of Impressionists, which are my favorite. We enjoyed the Sculpture Garden much more, and spent more time there.

Very nice place to go see, especially if you want to see something outside of Bourbon St & the French Qtr. I recommend taking the trolley so you get the whole experience of seeing the city.

NOMA has wide ranging collections that are well displayed. The museum is at the end of the Canal St. tram in City Park. There is also a nice sculpture garden attached to the museum.

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
