I am from New Orleans, and LOVE the Ogden. A true museum of Southern Art. When my extended family all comes together in NOLA, there is always at outing and 1/2 will venture to the WW2 Museum and I will always choose the Ogden. I...More
A gem of a museum steps from the hectic and hyped WWII museum where you can placidly stroll among paintings, photography, sculpture, and pottery. Folk style, crafts, high art, modern, abstract, representatiinal, critical perspectives on redlining and injustice, landscapes, industrial, urban, rural and more. This...More
Just down the street from the WW2 museum. The Ogden is a good counterpoint to that experience.
The Ogden fills a niche in art museums by focusing only on southern art. And, they do it well over three floors of exhibition space. Currently they have...More
This is a wonderful spacious well laid out gallery over five floors. Lot's to look at from both paintings and photography. The New Southern Photography exhibition is exceptional as is the Newton Howard paintings. There is also a large permanent collection of art
We stopped here on a whim, and were so glad that we did! I was particularly interested in one of the exhibits, "The Art of the Cup" (I'm a potter). The exhibit was nicely curated, showing a variety of styles. But, we took time to...More
This is such a nice museum with a great collection, but not so huge as to be overwhelming. There's a mix of modern and traditional art, and when I visited, a special photography exhibit. Very enjoyable morning spent looking at art!
It was a delightful surprise that the museum was free the day I was there. I found the permanent exhibit very well done, and small enough to enjoy and spend time with all of the work. The 2018 exhibit on the 5th floor was intriguing....More
Once a thriving industrial zone, today this district is home to a buzzing arts scene with an amazing assortment of galleries, boutiques, and studios having moved in and set up shop throughout the disused warehouses for which the area is so well known. Much of the art you'll come across here is local in scope, ownership and inspiration. However, among the many old brick warehouses are modern structures of steel and
glass housing large-scale cultural institutions of national prominence such as the National World War II Museum, the Contemporary Arts Center, and the Ogden Museum of Southern Art. Just as eye catching as what’s on view inside the galleries and museums is the chance to see your ship come in at the Julia Street Cruise Terminal, which serves as a wistful reminder of the city’s historic maritime prominence.

You can use the cable cars, there is a stop at St. Charles and Joseph; or at Lee Circle for inbound. There is a lot across the street, one at the WW2 Museum and others in the area. I recommend putting together a couple of activities in the area and lunch or dinner - many options. Galleries on Julia. Confederacy Museum is nice. WW2 is a half day. Area is pretty cool.
