Ohr-O'Keefe Museum of Art


Housed partially within several stainless steel pods designed by Frank Gehry (on a bad day, according to one local), this small museum complex celebrates the unique ceramic creations of eccentric master potter and Biloxi native George Ohr. Other exhibits spotlight the creative culture of the entire Mississippi Gulf Coast. Stop by the museum store for a good selection of regional ceramics and crafts.
