We expected this to be entirely about Grorge Ohr, the crazy potter from Biloxi. In addition to info about him, there were exhibits about integrating the MS beaches, an abstract artist from Biloxi, a painter from New Orleans and a self guided tour of the...More

Ok, I know the guy died a long time before his work was "discovered", but there's a lot of material on his efforts at self-promotion. Why is there so little background on the pieces? Videos were barely intelligible because the museum bought monitors, and there...More

The museum is located at 386 Beach Blvd. & you can NOT miss it due to its unique design. George Ohr is from Mississippi. A collection of his ceramic works are housed here. When alive, his work was very inexpensive. After death, it skyrocketed. The...More

This museum complex centres on the work of "Mad Potter" George E. Ohr, whose sculpted pottery displays an amazing variety of unexpected shapes and colours. The more I looked at these pieces, the more I discovered in them. The buildings, designed by Frank Gerry, are...More

If you got nothing else to do you might spend an hour here. We have been here twice. It is small with strange exhibits.

We were driven off the beach by the stifling hot weather but found an oasis at this museum. The Geary building is really an assemblage of multiple pavilions, looking like ufo’s have landed amidst the live oak trees and old houses. Not all of the...More

My husband and I visited yesterday. Only one building of the Ohr museum was open. In the one building that was open, only two exhibits had identifying signage, everything else had numbers, but no descriptions. We were disappointed.

My husband and I were a little disappointed with our visit to the Ohr-O'Keefe museum today. It seemed like there was a lot more exhibits and pieces the last time we visited. While it was very interesting, it just seemed "skimpy". The staff was very...More
