  • Marvelous presentation of jazz music with information regarding 3 jazz legends and the music that made them great. Music auditorium is perfect for this intimate concert provided by US Park service. Fr...  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.
