Learned about the complex history of how jazz as we know it came to be -- through cultural connections, travel both forced and chosen, family makeup, interpersonal connections, and political realities of the times. In the historic Treme neighborhood, Al Jackson and his beautiful 1-room...More

Found this museum while walking around the Treme neighbourhood. Very pleased to have discovered it. The curator, Mr Al Jackson, is friendly and keen to share his considerable knowledge with visitors. Highly recommended!!

In the heart of one of New Orleans most historically important neighborhoods, this petit museum tells a story you're unlikely to hear anywhere else: The essential Haitian Creole and Cuba contributions to the unique character of New Orleans.

That sound? That flavor? That certain je ne sais quoi
that lets you known you’re in “Nawlins” and nowhere
else? It’s all good and in broad abundance on the
streets of Tremé, where so much of what’s considered
to be the very best of New Orleans culture and
tradition is, put simply, just how people go about
their daily lives in this historic part of town. As
one of America’s oldest African-American neighborhoods
