Louisiana Galleries & Museums

Explore The Cultural Scene Of Louisiana

Home to an abundance of art galleries and museums, you'll get a true taste of Louisiana's culture scene when you explore them. 

New Orleans is an obvious choice when it comes to exploring the art and culture scene: head to the Southern Food and Beverage Museum to celebrate, discover and understand the food culture of the South, or head to Mardi Gras World for a behind-the-scenes look at the colourful, world-famous parade. Meanwhile, the New Orleans Museum of Art houses almost 40,000 objects alongside a constant stream of touring exhibits, including French and American art, photography and glass work.

New Orleans might be busy with art and cultural hotspots, but venture out of the city to see plenty more. The picturesque town of St. Francisville features numerous art galleries and antique shops, while the R.W. Norton Art Gallery in Shreveport houses American and European paintings, sculptures and decorative arts.
