    There is nothing much to see about this place and anyone who is visiting St Louis cathedral will come across it  more »

    If you're a history buff, it is worth a stop just to see the artifacts. Children probably wouldn't like it because it only has a few children friendly things (drums to bang on and a magnetic "who was ...  more »

    A great museum and a big contrast to the street performers right outside it's doors. Tons of things to see. The history of New Orleans is rich and complex and this museum does a great job in laying it out. Definitely worth the $6 and a couple of your hours in the afternoon.

    interesting if you like history. Lots of printed material at each station. If you want to read it all this will be a half day.

    It's probably a great place, but the staff there was so rude we decides not to bother giving them our money.

    A Louisiana State Museum. Very interesting stuff. Historical facts of the state from its indigenous beginnings, French influence, Spanish influence, war info, significant people in Louisiana's past. Too much to mention. If you like history and facts, this is a great place to go. They have displays that are cool.. It'll take a couple 2-3 hours to go through... Well worth it. Close to other museums and sights.

    One of the most popular museums of five Louisiana State Museums in New Orleans' historic French Quarter and hot spot in Jackson Square. Early history of French, Spanish, English influences, Native American cultures, influence of River Mississippi etc. The flagship of the French Quarter museums, this 1799 structure was the site of the Louisiana Purchase Transfer Ceremony in 1803. They features Napoleon's death mask and an extensive exhibit on Louisiana's early history. Must see.

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.
