Inside New Orleans Museum of Art
#1 Collins Diboll Circle, City Park / New Orleans, LA 70124
The museum: Open since 1911, this art museum—the oldest in New Orleans—has especially impressive collections of French and African art. Don't miss the sculpture garden, filled with works by legendary artists like Robert Indiana, Isamu Noguchi, and Louise Bourgeois.
The food: You’d be hard pressed to have a bad meal in New Orleans, and the eatery inside NOMA is no exception. Surrounded by the peaceful lagoons and lush greens of City Park, the café specializes in noshes like pressed paninis and flatbread pizzas. Among the popular items: the charcuterie plate and artisanal cheeseboard accompanied by seasoned nuts, fresh fruit, and pickled red onions.
