Imagine a night at one of the South's most enchanting venues. Situated on a ridge at the entrance to verdant City Park, the 100-year-old New Orleans Museum of Art is the ideal location for your wedding or special event.

Upon your arrival, you are greeted by an avenue lined with live oak trees and crape myrtles. At the top of the drive you find an ornate neoclassical building with formidable ionic columns, suggesting an event both luxurious and dramatic. Step inside and behold the Great Hall, a two-story entrance foyer with an interior wraparound mezzanine supported by more massive columns. Throughout the 46 galleries of exhibition space, you peruse the best of more than 30,000 works of art in the permanent collection, from ancient relics to sophisticated modern painting. Highlights include examples by such masters as Cassat, Courbet, Copley, Degas, Henri, Magritte, Matisse, Monet, Picasso, Pollock, Renoir, Rodin and Vuillard, to name but a few. This is the space to host the event of your dreams.

Adjacent to the Museum is the five-acre Sydney and Walda Bestoff Sculpture Garden, situated on a lushly landscaped site amongst meandering footpaths, reflecting lagoons, Spanish moss-laden 200-year-old live oaks, mature pines, magnolias, wild irises and pedestrian bridges. The garden provides a scenic and tranquil outdoor setting for an exchange of vows or an open-air cocktail reception that perfectly complements the grandeur of the Museum building.

NOMA is located 10 minutes from the French Quarter and 15 minutes from the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center. The Museum is located at the end of the historic streetcar line, a short ride from all of the major downtown hotels.

The Museum and Sculpture Garden are fully accessible to handicapped visitors.

[Please note that artworks on view change frequently and the Museum can not guarantee the presence of a specific work in advance.]
