Contemporary Arts Center Reviews & Ratings

  • It was great. Right in my neighborhood. Been meaning to go so we finally went since it was free to members of other museums this month. Great art! Very nice staff! They also have a very lovely nursing area for Mothers. That's very cool. Not sure how often the art is changed out but what we saw was great!

  • White linen night party.... sound issues! Surely in a space this nice that shouldn't happen. Great venue was nice, except the used mobile restrooms⁰

  • Attended for a wedding reception. Very large area for a large party. Staff was great. 4 stars because no restroom. Had to go to an outdoor trailer which was nice and luckily the weather was good. Potential for disaster though. Overall great experience!

  • Wonderful experience-- the best in the CBD! I was touring galleries during my visit to New Orleans and have to say that this place is a great spot! It's a beautiful and open space with coffee and tons of artwork! Beautiful. Lovely staff as well, I felt so welcomed!!!

  • Disgustingly priced for what you get, visited today and there is a tiny exhibit filled half with art from a local high school, should be advertised as a high school exhibit, go to noma art museum instead much larger and better for money in the area with a free sculpture park.
