NOMA stores almost 40,000 items. The collection continues to grow and is known for its prominent representatives of French, American art and photography.

Sculpture Garden is one of the most important installations in the USA. It contains 60 sculptures located on a picturesque landscape among paths, old majestic trees and plants.

New Orleans Museum of Art continues to exhibit works of art from ancient times to the present. Paintings, drawings, prints and arts and crafts explore the development of Western civilization from the pre-Christian era to the present day.

Among the treasures of NOMA is a group of works by the impressionist Edgar Degas. The collection of works by masters of the Paris School includes paintings and sculptures by Picasso, Braque, Dufy, Miro and others.

The New Orleans Museum of Art has developed the unique Arts of the Americas collection, exploring the cultural heritage of North, Central and South America from the pre-Columbian period to the Spanish colonial era. It is rich in Mayan culture, as well as painting and sculpture from Cuzco, the fabulous Spanish capital of Peru.

An important part of the exposition of American art is a set of old halls with furniture of the 18th and 19th centuries and decorative and applied art.

History of the Museum of Art

New Orleans Museum of Art — photo exhibition of contemporary art — American ButlerThe museum was originally funded by donations from the local philanthropist and collector Isaac Delgado. The building itself was designed by the chief city engineer Benjamin Harrod.

When Isaac turned 71, he asked the City Park Council to build a museum in New Orleans. In his petition, Delgado said that he wants to give the inhabitants of New Orleans a building where works of art can be assembled under one roof.

The request was approved and on December 11, 1911, the Isaac Delgado Museum of Art opened its doors. However, Isaac himself was not present at the opening due to health problems; and later he died at all.

In 1993, NOMA started a $23 million expansion and reconstruction project. The scale of expansion and renewal allowed him to become one of the 25% of the largest and most important museums of fine arts in the country.

Hundreds of thousands of visitors passed through its doors to see iconic international exhibitions, such as In Search of Immortality: Treasures of Ancient Egypt, America of Jefferson and France of Napoleon, Treasures of Tutankhamun, In Search of Alexander the Great, and Monet: Late pictures. "

Although the city park was badly damaged by Hurricane Katrina in 2005, most of the museum’s permanent collection has been preserved since the building is located on a raised platform. Today, the art museum is one of the best, presenting many unique and rare exhibits.

As for a century, NOMA continues to be a gathering place for all those who seek to share the beauty of this unusual collection of world art and learn from it. The museum attracts, educates and enriches various groups in the New Orleans area.
