I have never really understood Andy Warhol's work but I think I get it now. I am in awe of his Diamond Dust Shoes on display at NOMA. The collection at NOMA is interesting as is the sculpture garden. An easy streetcar ride from the...More

We have only visited the sculpture garden. It is free and great. Amazing pieces. You can walk or paddle boat. One couple had a gondola. Beautiful and peaceful

We were able to see only the special exhibits that day, but got a sense that the permanent collection is quite good also. Nice lunch in the cafe. I will say the sculpture garden seemed to me a bit stuffed. I'd have preferred a bit...More

I didn't realize that New Orleans has such a vibrant visual arts scene. Though not enormous, this museum is very worthwhile. Don't miss the sculpture garden right next to it.

The strengths of the collection are late 19th and 20th century American art, with some well-chosen contemporary special exhibits.Surprising depth in African and Pacific art and decorative arts. Nice cafe for lunch. Allow 1-1/2 to 2 hours if you want to see it all. Don't...More

I like the size of this museum. It's just big enough to house some nice art, but small enough to get through in a few hours.

We just loved our afternoon with art from so many centuries. Appreciated the special emphasis on art by nonwhite artists. Extremely diverse collection on different floors. We also loved the generous cobb-like salad with artichoke hearts, chicken, eggs,tomatoes on romaine.

the sculpture garden is fabulous as is the museum itself. The garden is a wonderful warm afternoon activity and the museum is perfect on a cold or rainy day.

The museum was really beautiful on the inside and the grounds were vast as it's located in a park. Spend sometime outside as well. Also, take the street car there for only $1.25 or $3 day pass. It's fast and cheap transportation.

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
