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

A nice collection of modernish southern art, heavy on the impressionist influenced work of Louisiana artists. Loved the special exhibits "Precise Vision," "Salazar: Portraits of Influence," and Doris Ulmann: fromt eh Lowlands tot eh Highlands."

warehouses for which the area is so well known. Much
