Modern building near the WW II Museum, filled with southern art - ranging from modern to classic. Self guided and well worth 90 minutes out of your day!

Good exhibits. Many are New Orleans or Louisiana landscape and culture, making it a good destination for tourists. Not crowded. We Spent a couple hours there. Closed on Tuesdays so watch when you go.

A diverse collection of exhibits, mostly contemporary artwork, all by southern artists. The building itself is a wonderful space.

I have been visiting in New Orleans with relatives for over 25 years and this was my first trip to the Ogden. What a find! Wonderful art in a very manageable space. It took us about an hour and a half to tour the exhibits and it was totally enjoyable. I'm looking forward to going again.

A very well designed museum showcasing Southern artists. Thought the in-depth artist areas were particularly well done. Easily managed. A short walk from the WWII museum.

We had a great morning at the Ogden Museum, the Special exhibitions - Simon Gunning and Maude Schuyler Clay were definite highlights. There is not plenty of good stuff but it is not so large that you feel "museumed" out by the end.

Very manageable museum focused on artists of the American South, 1-2 hours to see it all. Great for a rainy day.

For those of you that may not be in the mood for a war museum, this is an appealing way to split off from a group of friends headed to the nearby WWII museum. The museum is easy to get to, and just the right size for an afternoon visit. And, more importantly, the collection is diverse and interesting. I... More

Staying in Arts District / Warehouse District

Neighbourhood Profile
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, ownership and inspiration. However, among the many old brick warehouses are modern structures of steel and glass housing large-scale cultural institutions of national prominence such as the National World War II Museum, the Contemporary Arts Center, and the Ogden Museum of Southern Art. Just as eye catching as what’s on view inside the galleries and museums is the chance to see your ship come in at the Julia Street Cruise Terminal, which serves as a wistful reminder of the city’s historic maritime prominence.
