  • This museum is great for getting the history of the area. We had a docent to take us around and - while not necessary - did add to the experience. The area has an unusual history, and this museum help...  read more »
  • This is a terrific museum on the early history of New Orleans. There are only 3 exhibits but very good. I really enjoyed the exhibit on "the War of 1812." It's also a nice respite from the heat and it...  read more »
  • We could not see the beautiful front side Cathedral because right now under renovation. Large black tarpaulin covers the view. Too bad.

  • The Cabildo is a must-visit location for any tourist (or native like myself for that matter) that is interested in more than just the fun and debauchery to be had on Bourbon Street. It tells the story of New Orleans in a series of exhibits that are overflowing with information and beautiful, authentic artifacts from the area's history. The building itself is beautiful, the staff is friendly and knowledgeable, and the multi-story museum is amazing. Geared more toward adults than children, there are, nonetheless, several exhibits that feature hands-on artifacts that older children may find interesting.
  • Good for the knowledge but like many museums very short and limited. This experince will last about 30 to 60 mins.
  • History is written by the winners. The staff of the Cabildo should have so many trophies they would have to build another museum. History, because otherwise we'd look forward.
  • Fair pricing, lots of neat artifacts, and no shortage of excruciating detail about the subjugation of native Americans and the treatment of slaves and POC
  • You could spend days in this museum and still not soak up all of the knowledge and art. Only $6 for adults, $5 for students/seniors/veterans.
