I really enjoyed my visit to this museum. It showcased art from all of the southern states which in my mind made it very unique. The exhibits were very interesting.

We went to this museum because the weather was atrocious---pouring rain and thunderstorms. However, I am very happy we did that. Not only the art on display excellent, the building itself is very innovative and beautiful.

James Michalopoulos exhibit excellent and if you stop by his gallery on 617 Bienville St you'll get the whole enchilada. Several other exhibits worth browsing depending on your interest in more primitive art.

The museum is well designed and won't require an entire day's hike. The works are well presented with many unexpected contemporary Southern artists. The special exhibition with Michalopoulos is a must-see. Thursday night at the Ogden is an open house with music and a very nice crowd from the adjacent arts district.

A very nice modern art museum capturing the regional history of art. Very manageable in 1 to 2 hours. A good variety of art forms and a nice, well lit venue.

If you love the American South you must go. There is no other place like the South and this is its high temple.

I very much liked the black/white photos. There was a very interesting history/display about prisons and jails.

Surprising good selection of artwork in an easy to navigate museum. Really enjoyed the James MIchaloupolos exhibit on the 5th floor, but all the other permanent exhibits were great as well. Easy to get thru in a hour, or take longer if you like. Very close to the WWII Museum and next door to the Civil War Museum, so it's... More

Staying in Arts District / Warehouse District

Neighbourhood Profile
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 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.
