The fpc is absolutely amazing. Kim our guide was one of the best I have ever met. She had such a great understanding of the political and cultural and personal history of the freed colored people in NOLA. The collection was fascinating. She could answer...More
Learned a ton during our visit to this museum. Our guide Kim was super knowledgeable and gave a lot of insight into the FPC community. We reserved a spot on a tour through their website (you send a message and then they confirm it). Overall,...More
When I went to New Orleans, I really wanted to learn about the African-American cultural. This Museum was better than I expected. Learning about the Free Color People of the time was very informative. I would recommend doing this museum, going to Whitney Plantation and...More
This small museum is located in one of the most historically and culturally (and beautiful) areas of New Orleans. It is located next to the Degas Museum in the important Treme district, an area which is worth seeing before gentrification changes the nature of the...More
I visited the Museum FPC with some friends, and a local who recommended the visit. I'm glad I did. The museum tells an important story in the history of New Orleans. The art and artifacts were fascinating. And the curator (who also is the owner)...More

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
and among the nation’s first established residential areas for free people of color, Tremé’s significant heritage and contribution cannot be understated. This is especially the case when considering some of Tremé’s most famous residents, most notably jazz great Louis Armstrong. For full flavored food, funky and jazzed up music, and vibrant street life presented with homegrown pride, you can’t beat a visit to Tremé.
