So much to see and such an important part of history. We spent a full day seeing all the exhibits in the multiple buildings on the campus, including a documentary film that was an additional fee but well worth it. Strongly recommend pre-purchasing tickets, as...More

Once a thriving industrial zone, today this district
is home to a buzzing arts scene with an amazing
assortment of galleries, boutiques, and studios having

I have stayed at both Le Meriden on Poydras and the Doubletree on Canal. Both are good. I would recommend taking the Trolley to the WW II museum.
