Ogden Museum of Southern Art
Celebrating the art, history and culture of the American South, the dazzling Ogden Museum of Southern Art/University of New Orleans opened in 2003 in the historic Warehouse Arts District. The Museum is home to the largest and most comprehensive collection of Southern art in the world, showcasing art from 15 Southern states and the District of Columbia.
Named an affiliate of The Smithsonian Institution in 2001, it was the first museum in Louisiana to receive this prestigious designation.
Based upon the founding donation of more than 1,200 works from New Orleans businessman and philanthropist Roger H. Ogden’s collection of Southern art, the Museum’s collection has grown to include more than 4,000 works donated from individuals and collectors from across the United States. This nationally respected collection includes paintings, watercolors, drawings, prints, photographs, sculpture, wood and craft and embodies the visual heritage and history of the American South from 1733 to the present.
The National WWII Museum
Since its opening day on D-Day – June 6, 2000 – nearly two million visitors have toured the National WWII Museum. A must-see for history lovers and all patriots, it has been designated by the U.S. Congress as America’s official WWII Museum. Powerful images and extraordinary artifacts bring to life the American Spirit, the courage, teamwork and sacrifice of the young men and women who won the war and changed the world. From the 1930s prelude to war, to the Normandy Invasion and the battles of the Pacific Islands, visitors trace America’s role in the war and on the Home Front.
Mardi Gras World
To get the feeling of Mardi Gras year-round, visit Mardi Gras World, the largest float designing and building facility in the world. Here more than 80 percent of the floats that journey down New Orleans’ streets during the Carnival season are designed and built. During the tour, visitors learn about the many traditions surrounding Mardi Gras parades, balls and music, as well as the intricacies of float designing and building. Mardi Gras floats began rumbling down New Orleans streets in 1837 with mule-drawn carriages. Today the tradition continues with sophisticated mega-floats, which hold more than 200 masked riders and are lit with fiber optic cables and laser lights.
