  • Excellent art museum with a surprisingly delicious (and affordable) cafe for lunch. They have a wide variety of art ranging from African sculptures to modern paintings. And don't miss the sculpture garden outside!
  • not the place for kids, my bunch are rowdy and the staff likes to keep it quiet. still some interesting old stuff to see but thats everywhere down the french quarter. Good restaurants nearby.
  • We enjoyed the museum, and there are an interesting collection of pieces and exhibits. It is a bit smaller than we had originally thought, but they do a pretty good job getting a variety of things into the space. Definitely worth an hour or two if you are in the area, and also can be a great place to take a break from the heat of the park!
  • Beautiful facility with diverse and interesting exhibits. The sculpture garden is wonderful, and the cafe on site is very convenient. The programming ranges from opera to cooking demos to educational children's events. Situated adjacent to City Park on one side, NOMA is proximal to just about anywhere in Mid-City making this NOLA treasure perfect in just about every way!
  • Nice mix of modern and classic art but it was the sculpture garden that I really enjoyed. Could have spent hours there. Easy to get to from a tram up canal street. Well worth the visit.
