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

Best museum I’ve visited so far in NOLA. Unlike the others, this one has a solid permanent collection and the exhibition this month took up the entire fifth floor. Recommend.

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

Arts District / Warehouse District
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
