  • This museum had beautiful, classic paintings. I really enjoyed meandering through the several levels. The sculpture garden off to the side of the museum was lovely. NOTE: You cannot walk inside....  more »
  • Great modern art and African collections. The European part is very small but in excellent condition. Good works of 20th century artists. I was impressed by the African collection, so unusual...  more »
  • We had a terrific visit! Spent about two hours viewing the art and exhibits. The museum is clean and well cared for.  more »

  • Allocated 3hours to visit and easily could have spent more time and will pay a return visit. If you only have a couple of days to see the sites I would certainly put this near the top of your must see cultural attractions. A very nice collection and knowing the history of hurricanes, I am very appreciative that they are open and sharing their collection. Great range of artists and styles and I had a very leisurely visit. Couple this with the sculpture park and you will have a very enjoyable day, of course throw in a unique lunch along the way and cap it off with dinner in the French Quarter. Enjoy!
  • My sister and I found a deal on Groupon and really enjoyed our time there. We could have easily spent a couple of hours there. The gift shop had some neat finds so make sure you visit it! We will definitely be back. Note: parking is along the road in front of the museum and it’s free!
  • Very interesting artifacts! Something for everyone is available. The cafe has GREAT food! Its located at the back of City Park. Definitely an all day event and can re-enter same day as long as you have your sticker on.
  • Classical and contemporary art. Easily takes the whole day to see it. Absolutely worth it. Free for locals on Wednesdays
  • I recently worked with the Events Manager, Maura for a wedding at this stunning museum! Maura and the museum staff are excellent, super friendly and informative! The grounds are absolutely beautiful, well manicured lawns and the museum has old world charm! If I could give this venue 6-stars I would!
