A very well done museum with free admission! Very helpful docents. I really enjoyed all the maps they had on display of the city over the past 300 years. This museum did a great job of summing up the big turning points of the city's...More
This is not the biggest Museum in NOLA by any means but it is very good quality wise.
Some very beautiful paintings and other artefacts but the collection of Antique maps is enthralling.

We spent about two hours here perusing the collection. We particularly enjoyed how the staff were eager to engage in conversation with visitors to explain the exhibits. We had a number of interesting conversations.
We went through the free collection and it was a very interesting overview about the history of N.O. Docents are available with more information in each room, they tell you eventhough you don´t ask for it which can be a bit too much but also...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.
