New orleans is the home of Jazz so it is fitting that Jazz has a home in New Orleans. The exhibits are set out over a couple of floors of the old US Mint building, but maybe something as legendary as this needs more space....More
This is definitely a place to visit while in New Orleans. The exhibits were great. The museum had so much information, photos, events with music, and exhibits of old and new. It was exciting to me as I learned more than I thought I would....More
Great to see Fats Domino's white grand piano - renovated after Katrina but will never be played again; kind of apt somehow. The Louis Prima exhibition was good, as was that for Professor Longhair. Nice to see Louis Armstrong's first horn!
This is a nice Museum combination of the New Orleans Mint downstairs and the Jazz Museum upstairs there’s lots to see, My highlight was seeing Louis Armstrong’s Trumpet, but for jazz and Musicians alike there is a lot of stuff in here not to be...More
We were in the area and needed to cool off, so we went in to check this out.
I didn't realize that this was also the US Mint up until, I believe 1906. All of the human powered machines and stamps. I bunch of pristine...More
Beyond our expectations!! One of the most influential interesting museums we have ever visited. The best four hours we have spent gazing at such amazing history of jazz. One of the must see venues in New Orleans.
This is a great experience for jazz lovers. See first Louis Armstrongs' cornet, Professor Longhorn's records and piano, Pete Fountain's clarinet and other jazz memorabilia. It could hold more artefacts, but it is definitely worth coming for all the items which are on display.
We enjoyed this taster of various musicians. As a musician I know that there are more than was on display, but how do you make such a difficult choice. My husband is indifferent to music but the free hour long concert of a selection of...More
The website says they have thousands of artifacts including instruments played by the greats over the years, with pictures of some of them. So I excitedly went to see those and whatever else the museum had.
Well they do have all those items but they...More
A small and teeming network of laissez-faire living lounged out on the balmy banks of the Mighty Mississippi, the French Quarter has long been a port of call for folks in search of a good time and a great story. Perpetually inebriated Bourbon Street runs across its midriff like a strand of cheap ribbon tied around an otherwise rather pretty and impressively well-kept vintage dress. Throughout the rest of the
Quarter, brightly colored Victorian homes and businesses, famously done up with wrought-iron features, provide a distinct and immediately recognizable backdrop for all varieties of fun. At any given moment in this historic riverside setting, some of America’s finest meals are being cooked, most potent cocktails are being mixed, and most engaging music is being performed.
