Overview

We invite you to enjoy all that makes our museum unique: the artists, the architecture, the history, and the landscape. The Ohr-O'Keefe Museum of Art celebrates the innovative, independent and creative spirit of our namesake Mississippi master potter George Ohr. In a fitting tribute to Ohr, artist and architect Frank Gehry designed an award winning campus of bold intriguing self sufficient structures. The campus consists of our Mississippi Sound Welcome Center, three art galleries, the reconstructed home of Pleasant Reed, and our City of Biloxi Center for Ceramics. These buildings and the exhibits therein offer visitors separate but not isolated experiences - together creating a single unified vision connected by the expansive brick plaza and the majestic Live Oaks.

We enjoyed seeing the art and the information about Hurricane Katrina. It was an education because I wasn't aware of the damage Biloxi received. The volunteers/employees were helpful.

This museum is located in a beautiful setting across from the beach in Biloxi. The museum houses several exhibits. The museum is named for potter George Ohr and many of his pottery pieces.

The Ohr-O'Keefe museum has interesting buildings, but sadly do not take full advantage of them. The main building was closed due to a fire, not sure how long. Only one of the four Frank Gehry-designed pods is in use, as a Katrina museum. Still had...More

This is a little treasure in Biloxi. We loved the pottery and history of George Ohr and his story which gave him the self proclaimed title: "Mad Potter of Biloxi." The pottery workshop was very interesting and should be even better when full of potters....More
