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 admission for locals and Thursday nights the museum is open late for live music and drinks. All in all, a great place to take a break and soak up some art and fun.

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. For example, I cannot say enough about the handful of examples they have from Walter Anderson, and now that I have done some research inspired by their exhibits/displays, I have a much greater appreciation for the regional art they champion. Such a fine, fine place, thank you!

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.
