  • Allocated 3hours to visit and easily could have spent more time and will pay a return visit. If you only have a couple of days to see the sites I would certainly put this near the top of your must see cultural attractions. A very nice collection and knowing the history of hurricanes, I am very appreciative that they are open and sharing their collection. Great range of artists and styles and I had a very leisurely visit. Couple this with the sculpture park and you will have a very enjoyable day, of course throw in a unique lunch along the way and cap it off with dinner in the French Quarter. Enjoy!
  • My sister and I found a deal on Groupon and really enjoyed our time there. We could have easily spent a couple of hours there. The gift shop had some neat finds so make sure you visit it! We will definitely be back. Note: parking is along the road in front of the museum and it’s free!
