Ogden Museum Of Southern Art Reviews & Ratings
This museum was much more interesting than we were expecting. We had a tour guide for part of our time and spent a long time browsing on our own. It included some older traditional oil paintings by well known artists, but there were also interesting and unique newer pieces in various mediums that made important statements to the viewer. There was also a children's art section, showing many children's individual take on a theme. This museum also has evening jazz concerts in the foyer. We really enjoyed the Sabertooth Swing band inside on a rainy night. Drinks and place to dance were available. It was nice to hear the music in the concert rather than pub setting.
A really challenging art museum. I'm glad they told me to start at the top because the current visionary art exhibit+the self-taught exhibit is a lot to take in and it was a relief to get to the more conventional stuff lower down. I never would have had the energy to engage going the other way. This museum was the highlight of my trip.
I felt a little let down on the amount of displayed work in this five story building. Regrettably only two of these floors are viewable. The museum consists mostly of landscapes and the abstract with portraits and surrealism almost all works are from the 20th century.
Decent art museum. Not too pricey albeit somewhat small. Something to add to the day while also doing the other museums close by.
Very close to the WWII museum. One of my newest faves in town! I will visit here on my next stop in to NOLA. The staff--Sergio-- was so informative of all of my questions! It's ok if he weren't educated on the artwork, his friendly and welcoming personality sealed the visit for me! That extra info was a bonus!
