Located in beautiful City Park, this breathtaking museum houses nearly 40,000 paintings, sculptures, and prints, plus the Courtyard Cafe and the Museum Shop. The art at New Orleans Museum of Art comes from across the globe and represents everything from Southwestern Native American art to 19th-century French Impressionists.
Went to the Museum last weekend for the first time since Hurricane Katrina. It is beautiful. I am a Blue Dog fan and the George Rodriquez' Blue Dog exhibit is fantastic. The exhibit includes work before the Blue Dog emerged as well as recent work. They say they have about 200 pieces of his work on exhibit. The exhibit is only there until June 8, 2008 so be sure and go see it. Also plan on spending some time in the Sculpture Garden which is outside the Museum.
One of America's finest small museums. The Femme show was incredible. Recent additions have made the grounds even more lovely -- the new crepe myrtles are so beautiful.

I am a fan of art- particularly paintings (impressionism, etc.) and I enjoyed the variety of artists with their varying styles. I could have spent all day there were it not for my husband who is not all that "artistically cultured."
This museum is so wonderful, I became a member...and I live in NYC!
Don't miss the glass and the Faberge collection. The contemporary art will convert the most curmudgeonly art fuddy-duddy. Explanatory copy accompanies the pieces...adjacent sculpture garden is a great place to relax and reflect. And you'll want everything in the gift shop...
