The New Orleans Museum of Art is the oldest fine arts museum in the city of New Orleans. It is situated within City Park, a short distance from the intersection of Carrollton Avenue and Esplanade Avenue.
It was established in 1911 as the Delgado Museum of Art. Initially funded through a charitable grant by local philanthropist and art collector Isaac Delgado, the museum building itself was partly designed by the former chief engineer of New Orleans Benjamin Morgan Harrod.
The museum also includes the NOMA Museum Shop, a auditorium for film screenings, artist talks, panels and presentations, and Café NOMA, a restaurant by Ralph Brennan.
