It’s a sweet museum, it feels good to be there, with an interesting range of exhibitions. The story behind the Tiffany windows is great. Also, the Tulane campus is beautiful. I thought the “Women of Newcomb” exhibition was interesting. The Newcomb was a lovely surprise.

The gallery is hidden deep in the Tulane campus but it's a beautiful campus to walk through. It is excellently curated. The displays are at eye level, which makes viewing very pleasant. The beautiful pottery, jewelry, prints, and book bindings were done by young women in the 1920s. There are also two beautiful Tiffany stained glass triptychs in the hallway... More
