Today, the museum hosts an impressive permanent collection of almost 40,000 objects. The collection, noted for its extraordinary strengths in French and American art, photography, glass, and African and Japanese works, continues to expand and grow, making NOMA one of the top art museums in the south.

Audubon Zoo
 

Audubon Zoo is a New Orleans landmark and a living museum filled with some of the rarest and most beautiful creatures of nature.

There have been animals at this site since the 1884 World Exposition in Audubon Park. Today, Audubon Zoo is 58 acres of animals in their natural habitats. The zoo consistently ranks among this country’s best.


Jackson Square
 

Historic Jackson Square, originally known in the 18th century as "Place d'Armes," and later renamed in honor of the Battle of New Orleans’ hero Andrew Jackson, is a timeless attraction in the heart of the French Quarter of New Orleans.

For well over a half-century, there has been a plein air artist colony at Jackson Square. Local artists paint, draw, create portraits and caricatures, and display their work on the square's iron fence. Some have been there for generations! Jackson Square is a favorite site for visitors and locals. The artists, restaurants, museums, merchants, and the square itself make Jackson Square one of the French Quarter's most popular destinations.
