  • I love this serenely beautiful gallery. It is quietly inspiring to wander through the wonderful art collection with something for every style and taste. 
  • Wonderful place to spend a relaxing afternoon Offers many areas of paintings. Brings in special artis works during the year Very attractive displays and offers things for the young at times 
  • I visited this Art Gallery with a group of teachers. We enjoyed the great art and the beautiful greenery that surrounds the gallery. The staff is very friendly and accommodating. 
  • So first off, this isn't the Louvre or Vatican or Getty Museum. It's Shreveport, Louisiana. In that context I give it five stars. I prepared my wife and kids that we could probably just swing through and see the entire collection in 15-30 minutes. I was guessing they would have a minor work by one or two major artists and a lot of regional stuff. We had to rush to make it through in 1:15, skipping a couple galleries and skimming others. Boy was I surprised. This museum has probably a dozen galleries along a linear layout in a beautiful, lush garden setting. It's heavy on American Westerns and Western Expansion landscapes. They have pretty solid examples of Bierstadt and Remington, along with some stunning landscapes from artists I wasn't familiar with. The European wing has a single Cassat and a few small Rodins, as well as a smattering of other interesting works. They also have a lot of random collections like firearms, art from children's storybooks, and French and American poster art. There's something here to delight every taste and some significant examples from some significant artists. Definitely worth a detour a few minutes off the Interstate for this regional jewel.
  • I had a very memorable experience here. The grounds are beautiful, and the artwork is worth a look.
  • They have a great collection of flowers and walking trails. Also if you Ingress they have a ton of portals!! It's been a while since I have been inside to see the art but when I was there it was very interesting.
  • The indoor gallery has a vast selection of various artworks and different rooms for traveling collections. The artwork varies from paintings to large-scale sculptures. The outdoor gardens are one of Shreveport's best kept secrets. The outdoor area behind the art gallery hosts numerous statues that can be found on the walking trails. Along with the sculpted art, there are many small waterfalls and a pond.
  • It's a beautiful hidden treasure of a museum. If possible, do everything you can to make it to their annual Night at the Museum.
