  • Free to visit, worth the time. The JAZZ exhibit on the 2nd floor was excellent, lots of the great instruments and a TV interview with Louis Armstrong that will make you think. 
  • Nice free attraction found at the end of The French Market. 3 Floors of history of the mint and musicians. Missed the 2pm free concert on the 3rd floor. Everyone who visits the Market should stop in a...  more »
  • Highlight was the clean toilets and air conditioning. The US mint museum on the ground floor is ok, but so much more could be made of the history of this building. Upstairs is a jazz museum which was ...  more »

  • The Old U.S. Mint has wonderful exhibits, especially for not charging admission. The grounds well kept up, and the staff were helpful in describing the exhibits on each floor. The free jazz concert, Alex Bosworth, was superb and provided a nice indoor activity to cool off during the New Orleans afternoon heat!
  • Interesting location with free admission. It features part of the old mint equipment and history, with a southern art and music exhibit on the second level. Anyone in the area should stop by as it is a good historic site to visit on a limited amount of time.
  • Very interesting historical information. Not large but worth the stop.
  • Great respite from the heat with daily free live music performances. What an unexpected delight. Staff was helpful, and perusing the US mint displays were also worth the entry fee (free...)
  • Ground floor has a historical museum about the US Mint. Second floor has rotating exhibits (June 2016 - Louis Armstrong and an exhibit about self-taught artists). Third floor has a theater/hall space for performances. Part of it is owned by the National Park Service although there's no passport cancellation stamp.
