The city park provides a fitting backdrop for New Orleans Museum of Art, which features art from around the world. With particularly impressive collections of French and American art, photography, glass, and African and Japanese art, the museum now features nearly 40,000 works of art. Opened in 1911, it is the city's oldest institution for fine arts. You'll find works by Picasso, Renoir, Monet, and Jackson Pollock on display inside, and 2 hectares (five acres) of sculpture gardens on the museum's grounds. The sculpture garden showcases over 60 sculptures by artists from around the world and includes mature pine, magnolia, and oak trees. New Orleans Museum of Art is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our , online itinerary creator Edition.
New Orleans Museum of Art reviews
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!
