  • Beautiful grounds and excellent tour. Our tour guy was very informative and excited to tell you about the family. The gardens are absolutely beautiful and you get to wonder all through them. There's many different benches and seating areas for you to sit and enjoy the grounds.
  • Interesting stop for N.O. visitors. The mansion is beautiful, so are the gardens although it may not have been the best time of the year when I visited. Our tour guide was great and I loved her sense of humour.
  • Beautiful home and gardens. Our tour guide was fantastic and did a great job entertaining the children in the group. Lovely way to spend a sunny afternoon.
  • Be sure to visit the "secret garden" area for children +adults; lovely hidden treasure right off Met. Rd- not far frm Canal Street + cemeteries. Gorgeous historical home + beautiful landscapes (gratefully restored to perfection since Katrina!)
  • Our guide was a high school senior who really knew his stories about the family and the architecture of the house and gardens. A great spot for photos, contemporary art, and a look into the lives of the mortals who can have everything they want. In a town with many tourists, this place is often overlooked. We went for the L'dor V'dor exhibit and enjoyed the whole experience.
