Long Description:
What started as the personal collection of Roger Ogden has become the largest collection of southern art in the country. The museum features five floors of rotating selections from its 1200-piece collection. The galleries are housed on the four upper floors, wrapped around a sunlit atrium. With the large gift shop on the first floor and the open atrium, the museum looks larger than it is. You can thoughtfully cover the galleries in about an hour, making the admission price of $10 a little steep. On the top floor, outside, is a small sculpture garden overlooking New Orleans’s Upper Central Business District.
