New Orleans Museum of Art
The New Orleans Museum of Art (NOMA) has one of the biggest art collections in the American South, with an impressive selection of French, Japanese, American, and African art, as well as the Besthoff Sculpture Garden. Visitors stroll the gardens, explore the permanent collection, and attend oany of the many interesting temporary exhibits.

The Basics
The art museum started life 100 years ago with just nine items on display. The collection has grown over time to include more than 40,000 works of fine art, sculpture, furniture, and historic artifacts. Of particular interest are the French impressionist and post-impressionist works by Degas (who lived in New Orleans for a time), Monet, Renoir, Picasso, Gauguin, and more. The building itself, with imposing Doric columns and impressive classic façade, also deserves your attention.

The Sydney and Walda Besthoff Sculpture Garden is a another highlight, which can be enjoyed via a guided audio tour or a self-guided walk. The shaded garden is home to 50 modern works of sculpture dotting the landscaped grounds. The museum is a stop on some New Orleans city tours and you can buy a pass with fast-track entry so you can skip any lines.
