Free and open to the public. Chances are you’ll cross this in your exploration of the French quarter so why not have a look. It doesn’t take but about 10 minutes to see everything and the courtyard is beautiful. Great photo op with nice scenery...More

We are very proud of this gem in the Quarter! Dating back to 1788, it is a rare find in a much more modern world! Very happy that you enjoyed your visit.

Our carriage tour driver recommended this museum and the hours on-line and posted at the front door said they were open. We arrived and it was closed. We called their number and were told they were closed all week. Poor communication.

It was an enjoyable quick visit....free to public which was good to see...I liked more because of its historical value. Shows you what a home would have been like in its era.

Lovely exterior and courtyard in back, but current ceramic exhibit was a little dull and uninteresting to me.

We found this museum wandering around the city on foot. It was a lovely surprise. It was a lovely, quiet space to be in after the noise of the French Quarter on game day.

French Quarter
A small and teeming network of laissez-faire living
lounged out on the balmy banks of the Mighty
