The Southeastern Contemporary Art Gallery presents national and regional exhibitions of contemporary art, lectures and workshops.
The museum offers eight exhibition rooms with Florida Parishes history, genealogy, artist exchange room, African art, inventors, music, and sports. There are 23 large murals telling the story of the African American plight. There is also a heritage garden and Viet Nam Memorial Wall with the names of over 7,000 African Americans who lost their lives during the conflict.
The Regional Arts Center has displays of work done by local artists.
The Guaranty Gallery serves as a forum for local artists to showcase their artworks. Exhibits change monthly beginning on the first business day of each month. The gallery is open to the public Monday through Friday during regular banking hours.
The RPO, a group of local artists in Ponchatoula, invites you to visit the RR Museum. They sell paintings, prints, greeting cards, mosaics and pottery.
Built in 1876, this museum was once a one-room school house that now houses antique quilts, furnishings, clothing, early farming and household artifacts, and pictures on the history of Ponchatoula.
Open 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. on weekdays, this museum offers new exhibits each month.
The museum is housed in the historic courthouse, built in 1911.
The Lake Ponchartrain Basin Maritime Museum, located on the banks of the Tchefuncte River, takes you on a historic journey from the Native Americans who discovered the Northshore to present day. The Museum also includes the Tchefuncte River Lighthouse Station (built in 1837) at the mouth of the river, the 1880s era lighthouse keeper's cottage, which has recently been moved to the Museum grounds for renovation and a modern concrete dock on the river.
Brunner Gallery is the creation of gallery director, Susan Brunner and Louisiana sculptor, Rick Brunner, a husband and wife team who opened their first art gallery ten years ago. Their vision was to provide a platform for a small handful of local and regional artists to show and exhibit original artwork. Exhibitions of original painting, sculpture, photography, and mixed media assemblage feature the work of artists from across the United States and Europe. Brunner also hosts a selection of fine/functional art objects made of glass, ceramics, metal, paper and wood including fine handmade contemporary furniture.
Fort Isabel Gallery offers the casual viewer or the serious collector traditional, as well as contemporary art by a partnership of established, award-winning local artists. In the gallery's monthly exhibits, the viewer can find a wide variety of artistic expression.
Museum displays items from 1870 through the early 1900's.
