A perfect 2 hours spent here in a hot afternoon. Beautiful arts and craft displayed in every room. So creative and inspiring! The third floor was closed but the rooftop terrace was a pleasant surprise. Glad we chose this museum, it complemented the galleries on...More

One floor was closed, but that happens. Really enjoyed the historical southern art exhibit, and the contemporary juried show that was up was pretty cool. Did miss one of my favorite NOLA artists work - Jacqueline Bishop was not up.

I agree with other reviewers that this is a great out-of-quarter stop for southern-focused art. A couple of things to add: start your visit with an elevator ride to the 4th floor and check out the view from the outdoor deck. Also, Thursdays are free...More

Arts District / Warehouse District
Once a thriving industrial zone, today this district
is home to a buzzing arts scene with an amazing
assortment of galleries, boutiques, and studios having
moved in and set up shop throughout the disused
warehouses for which the area is so well known. Much
of the art you'll come across here is local in scope,
