  • Right On Jackson Square. So it easy to find and walk up the spiral stairs to see the entire townhouse. Furnished for the 1850s as the name implies it was interesting as you are given a plastic coated ...  more »
  • This museum is definitely on the smaller side but was still a very nice attraction. My friend and I enjoyed seeing all of the rooms and reading about the history. The gift shop has a lot of cute thing...  more »
  • The Pontalba buildings from 1848 flank Jackson Square and have shops on the ground level and apartments above. The 1850 apartment is beautiful and gives a nice glimpse into the home of a wealthy merch...  more »

  • This was an interesting little hole in the wall museum. A house preserved as it would have been in the year 1850. Very interesting..
  • This historic townhouse can be seen in a self-guided tour or with a docent. The house consists of three bedrooms, a parlour, dining room, a small kitchen, an office (?) , all of which were furnished to reflect the 1850s. If you want to see a bit of history but don't have time or don't wish to visit a museum, you could tour this in 10 minutes or take more time with a docent. Note: Narrow stairs and walkways.
  • Came here during lunch time and the place was empty! We had the whole house for ourselves to explore. Educational and docents were extremely informative. Stay an hour and take a look around to have a feel of what it was like living here in 1850.
  • I'm giving this 4 stars. But don't expect a lot. It's just an example of a house in 1850. Neat stuff. If you're into interior design (like the girl who would be my girlfriend), you'll love it. It will only take 45 mins to an hour to go through, so it won't take your whole day up, and it's about 200 feet from 2 other museums in the Jackson Square area.
  • Took us a while to make sense of the pottery exhibition, but enjoyed this quick historical stop.

Where to stay in New Orleans

Though you can walk to most tourist attractions in New Orleans from a hotel in the central business district, remember that many other parts of town feature less expensive and equally comfortable accommodations. Smaller hotels and private guesthouses in quiet residential neighborhoods offer not only good local food and spacious rooms, but can also allow you to explore the city's culture away from overwhelming tourist crowds. To reduce your carbon footprint during your stay, consider one of French Quarter's many green or eco-friendly hotels.
