Should you wonder what gallery really started it all, look no further than Arthur Roger Gallery. Since its opening 20 years ago in New Orleans, it has set the standard by which all other galleries are measured. Roger's ties to the art world in New York have played a major role in the development of the art community in Crescent City. He sets the standard by daring to be different, with feature shows that are strong on local tradition as well as those spanning the far reaches of the world. This gallery represents such artists as Francis Pavy, Ida Kohlmeyer, Douglas Bourgeois, Ersy Schwartz, Paul Lucas, Willie Burch, Gene Koss and George Dureau.
Louisiana Children's Museum offers a toddler area and children's drama, dance, and puppet shows. There are also art and science exhibits, as well as hands-on math and physics exhibits, and a reproduction of a television studio. Many of the exhibits are geared toward learning through doing. This style of learning makes it fun for both parents and kids alike. This is a great rainy day field trip and a good place for anyone trying to get away from the "adult" aspects of the city.

The owner makes trips to Africa on a regular basis, collecting sculptures, costumes, baskets, textiles, weapons and jewels.
