One floor was closed, but that happens. Really enjoyed the historical southern art exhibit, and the contemporary juried show that was up was pretty cool. Did miss one of my favorite NOLA artists work - Jacqueline Bishop was not up.

I agree with other reviewers that this is a great out-of-quarter stop for southern-focused art. A couple of things to add: start your visit with an elevator ride to the 4th floor and check out the view from the outdoor deck. Also, Thursdays are free...More

Only semi interesting displays consisting of limited pieces. If not for some of the sculptures and photographs, this would have been a total waste.

Locals told us not to bypass the Ogden, and boy were they right. Uncrowded and centrally located near the WWII Museum, this is a great spot to spend a few hours seeing with new eyes the work of some brilliant southern artists, contemporary and otherwise....More

From the entrance to the various artist, this was a truly amazing experience. The building is beautiful and the selection from the local artist were absolutely amazing. This is a must visit on your next trip to New Orleans.

Recognizing self taught art as a major art form- this museum usually has an exhibition showcasing one of the American south's true treasures

This is a very fine art museum. The exhibits are very nicely curated and give an excellent overview of art in the south, both contemporary and historical. Some of the newer art on display contains powerful messages from the artists about contemporary society. The total...More

We were a little skeptical with the word Southern in the name of this small museum thinking it might be full of folk art. We have nothing against folk art, but are used to big museums like the Met and the Louvre. I can tell...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
