The Musee Conti Wax Museum is fine if you want a history of New Orleans and where the street names came from. It was quite interesting and you get to know a little history. Fannie, AG, and IAGMI, went there for Fannie Pak she loves...More

Although it's closed I have heard that there was a rumor that they'll be opening in a new location... I truly hope that they do we open somewhere else because the museum was absolutely phenomenal the wax Creations were truly lifelike

I hosted my 1st ghost hunt. Now they are ripping that building in half. But i have heard that the machines keep going out, maybe the ghost are fighting back

We visited this museum for two reasons; one, it was recommended by our Save Our Cemeteries tour guide as a good historic view of New Orleans and two, we’ve never been to a wax museum. We were able to join, by periphery, a tour with...More

This brought back a lot of memories. We both took field trips to this museum a couple of times. It gives you a great visual of Louisiana history. It's going to close in January so don't miss out!!

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

The Conti street location permanently closed in January 2016. We moved the wax figures and larger set pieces into storage and hope to re-open the museum at a new location by late 2018.
