Ogden Museum of Southern Art
Just a great museum! If you happen to be so lucky to be staying on a Thursday evening, the Ogden hosts the "Ogden After Hours" which runs from 6-8pm it features live music and a few cocktail bars. Enjoy the Art, Music and have a drink as you explore the museum. Great views of the city from the roof…
My personal favorite spot for regional art. Skip NOMA, go here! Thursday nights are open late for performances and viewings, check their calendar for events!
The Ogden features local artists from various periods. They often have music on Wednesday nights.
Spend a day in the Warehouse District in the Ogden's beautiful collection.
“Contemporary Arts Center is a terrific venue to watch a Burlesque performance or art show. It is a must stop during summer's White Linen night. ”
“This is a must do! It may take you more than one day to tour and be able to soak it all in! You are able to immerse yourself into a journey through WWII. The exhibits are like no others that you have ever seen. You can go online to purchase your tickets in advance to save the wait in line, www.nationalww2museum.org”
“Museum in City Park with a cafe and gift shop. Special events throughout the year so please check the website.”
“Perfect way to spend a day touring the New Orleans Museum of Art and the Sculpture Garden. After the museum walk over to Cafe du Monde and enjoy Beignet's and coffee. Take a walk along the tree lined pathways throughout City Park and maybe hop on one of the swan paddle boats. While you are there don't forget about Storyville or the New Orleans Children's Museum!”
