Ogden After Hours

Every Thursday night the Ogden Museum is open until 8pm for Ogden After Hours, its weekly entertainment series. OAH is a place for Southern musicians to showcase new work or break into the New Orleans market. Visitors can enjoy music in such genres as blues, jazz, R&B, country, folk, rockabilly, Cajun, bluegrass, Swamp pop, gospel, and rock ‘n’ roll, as well as enjoy various food pop ups as well as a cash bar. The entertainment series also occasionally includes screening of various films and documentary and readings by Southern authors. There is also a children’s guided art activity inspired by Southern artists, held weekly, in the education gallery on the third floor.
