We spent hours there. The collection is very good. They have docent tours at 1:00 every day. Highly recommended.

Beautiful museum - highly recommend! The P. 4 exhibit on display until Feb 25 is amazing - everyone should see it. Follow the P. 4 signs to make sure you've viewed everything.

Always worth a ride to City Park on the Canal trolley and a visit to the museum. There is nearly always an outstanding exhibits or two that you won't see anywhere else. Last visit in November 2017 had an exhibit of mid-century American studio pottery...More

The museum had more variety than we expected, and for the size of museum, some unexpected works of art (Warhol, Picasso, Dali, Miro and more). My wife is not an art afficionado, but she enjoyed the afternoon too. The cafe closes early, so plan your...More

First visit to NOMA, and will definitely go back! Exhibits ranged from contemporary to classics with a wonderful addition to NOLA-specific art and artifacts! Well worth the price!

Lakeview extends inland from the shores of Lake
Pontchartrain with much of the area reserved for
family-friendly City Park. Home to the New Orleans
Museum of Art, the Besthoff Sculpture Garden, Carousel
Gardens Amusement Park, and the city’s own lush
Botanical Gardens, City Park is a New Orleans gem and
the perfect spot for outdoor fun with as much of a mix
of culture and/or amusement as you would like. Beyond
