Awesome Museum!

The current Paul Allen collection is outstanding. It's great to be able to see Monet, Manet, Cezanne, O'Keefe, John Singer Sargent and others!

We were enchanted with the museum as the surface was easily covered in half a day's time. Also, there is a cafe in the museum where you can pause and that offers affordable food and beverages.

An avid art lover, I visit museums in any city in which I travel. NOMA really surprised me by the vastness of the collection, the lovely city park area and statue gardens. It rained during our trip so this venue was a great way to spend a thunderous afternoon. There were many works by impressionists like Monet, Cezanne, Manet, more.... More

We were very impressed by this art museum. The Paul Allen collection was worth the price of admission. We love Venice and there were many pieces by various artists related to that gem. The adjoining sculpture garden was a real highlight, too! You really should give it a try if weather permits. We caught glimpses of the surrounding city park... More

Every time we come into the city, we try to make it to NOMA and see what new exhibits they might have.

My daughter and I were enjoying the scenery, which was minimal as at least three sections were closed, but the least entertaining part was that we were approached for "reading" too close and also for my daughter receiving a text! We truly felt we were being followed, and it was very unappreciated!

I was surprised by the breadth of the exhibits - from Impressionist, to Middle Ages to Oceania and Pre-Columbian, not to mention Japanese - and these are just some of the permanent exhibits. There is also a new cafe which has excellent soups and sandwiches and teas, with a wonderful vista of City Park. Parking is plentiful, and most times... More

Really top notch sculpture garden amidst huge weeping moss oak trees and pine trees and ponds. Went during the Paul Allen special exhibition which has a bunch of world class artists such as Monet

Don't believe the anti-hype -- the Museum of Art is a really good time. It seems to get a bad rap -- our B&B hosts poo-pooed it (as did some snarky internet reviews we found) but that made our enjoyment of it all the more surprising and magical. Everyone acknowledges the sculpture garden is great, and it really is, but... More

Staying in Lakeview

Neighbourhood Profile
Lakeview extends inland from the shores of Lake Pontchartrain with much of the area reserved for family-friendly City Park. Home to the New Orleans Museum of Art, the Besthoff Sculpture Garden, Carousel Gardens Amusement Park, and the city’s own lush Botanical Gardens, City Park is a New Orleans gem and the perfect spot for outdoor fun with as much of a mix of culture and/or amusement as you would like. Beyond City Park more great excuses to stay outside beckon, whether on land or by boat. Developed a good deal later than most other New Orleans neighborhoods, Lakeview has a distinctively different look and feel compared to other parts of the city. Fans of mid century modern design and contemporary architecture particularly enjoy leisurely drives around the residential streets of Lake Vista, Park Island and along Lakeshore Drive.
