The area
Address
Neighbourhood: French Quarter
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.

When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Closed for the month of August 2023. Need to update site. Walked way too far in the heat. Needed this info earlier. Really disappointed.

Arrived in time for a brief tour and history lesson. Then we could look around. But the BIG surprise was the opportunity to try on hats and costumes. This was wonderful. We laughed and took photos. Really fun and highly recommended.

The costumes were a lot of fun for the teen girls and kids in our families. The show provided by Carl and the other staff at the museum was very entertaining.

Splendid display of Mardi Gras costumes and an excellent overview of the historical underpinnings of the festival with informative displays spread out over several rooms. Offers an opportunity to briefly wear a costume for a selfie and the local is centrally located just two minutes walk from Bourbon Street.

Both interesting an educational. Enjoyed learning about both the art and science of the floats as well as the logistics of the parade.
For the type of museum it is, it's a 5 star but it's not in the same league as the WW II museum.

Totally enjoyable experience from start to finish! Great host made you really feel welcomed. Very entertaining show and explanation about Mardi Gras and all the Krewes and Social Clubs and parades. Learned a lot about the local culture and tons of fun trying out costumes. I came in with low expectations and came away with a great impression.
