Overview

We invite you to enjoy all that makes our museum unique: the artists, the architecture, the history, and the landscape. The Ohr-O'Keefe Museum of Art celebrates the innovative, independent and creative spirit of our namesake Mississippi master potter George Ohr. In a fitting tribute to Ohr, artist and architect Frank Gehry designed an award winning campus of bold intriguing self sufficient structures. The campus consists of our Mississippi Sound Welcome Center, three art galleries, the reconstructed home of Pleasant Reed, and our City of Biloxi Center for Ceramics. These buildings and the exhibits therein offer visitors separate but not isolated experiences - together creating a single unified vision connected by the expansive brick plaza and the majestic Live Oaks.

Take the time to see this architectual marvel. Lots of parking and the outside is just outstanding. Take a class while you are there.

Perched on the gulf and rebuilt after Katrina, there are many reasons to visit. One is the magnificent main structure designed by Frank O. Gehry. Second is the amazing limited time exhibits (we loved the Steve Prince wood blocks!), third is gift shop that allows...More

This is a community center that teaches pottery classes. We visited expecting to view the pottery of the charismatic person in which the "museum" is named after. There was one vase. After we paid we were told 4 of the six buildings were closed. The...More

We enjoyed seeing the art and the information about Hurricane Katrina. It was an education because I wasn't aware of the damage Biloxi received. The volunteers/employees were helpful.

This museum is located in a beautiful setting across from the beach in Biloxi. The museum houses several exhibits. The museum is named for potter George Ohr and many of his pottery pieces.

The Ohr-O'Keefe museum has interesting buildings, but sadly do not take full advantage of them. The main building was closed due to a fire, not sure how long. Only one of the four Frank Gehry-designed pods is in use, as a Katrina museum. Still had...More
