LSU Museum Of Art Reviews & Ratings
The LSU Museum of Art is very nice. On this first Sunday, there was a live violinist whose sounds were heard throughout the museum during our visit. I would've liked to be cautioned about the exhibit showing sexual material as I chauffeured 5 children along with me during this visit.
Spent a couple of hours here yesterday. Nice mixture of old and new. Impressive collections on loan. If you like silver, huge exhibit. I enjoyed the artist whose photography is featured. Huge collection. Staff is friendly. We went on a Friday afternoon so it was quiet. There is a cool sushi bar on the top floor and a beautiful patio outside for drinks and conversation. Would be too hot until late evening right now. I love art museums, and I enjoyed this on
Some very interesting exhibits in a beautiful location with awesome point of view on the Mississippi River. A boutique on the first floor with artifacts reproduction and a restaurant on the 6th floor rooftop. Really worth the visit! Also, next door you can visit the Old Louisiana State Capitol with its spiral staircase and its stained glass dome (see photos), worth a look! Didn't have time for a full visit :-(
Visited for the Impressionist exhibit they had. Very nice museum.
We just happened to come on a day they had an event and really enjoyed the conversation and wine. It was very enjoyable!
