  • Great place to learn about the history of New Orleans. Many great exhibits and artifacts with plenty of written information. Well worth the $6. Napoleans death mask was a highlight for me.
  • The Louisiana State Museum in Baton Rouge gives a better picture of Louisiana Culture than this one --visit it instead.
  • It was the best Museum that I ever been to! I learned a lot!
  • Detail history of New Orleans in the 18th and 19th centuries. Very easy to overlook but a must see
  • Museum wasn't very good, and the lady at the front desk was an absolute jerk. Told us we couldn't stand in the lobby unless we we're buying a ticket (We'd just gone through) and she told an member of our group that they "didn't have a women's restroom" even though there was a men's right next to the front door. Absolutely terrible experience, I advise you to stay away, specially if that woman is working the front desk
