  • Free museum of historic U.S. Mint with many interesting coins and old machinery. Museum also includes jazz and New Orleans historical tidbits. Sometimes there are live performances! Also really enjoyed the display of Pulitzer winning photographs.
  • There was a variety of different types of things on display for example some coins and historical machines and such, some black history, some jazz history. It was a nice relief from the heat and free. Self guided. would rather had a guide to much reading. Didn't hold my husband and I attention or others we saw through out the building. There was a few phone like devices narrative. A visual narrative. And a live piano player we didn't stay or participate in any of the 3 later. There were about 20 people that were waiting for the live piano player. Depending on what you like you may be interested.
  • If you want to learn a little bit more about new orleans and jazz history you need to come here. Sometimes they have artists playing music on the first floor. On the second floor they have a Louis Armstrong exhibit. They even have his first trumpet.
  • Historic building with fun stuff to look at. It's a museum with free admission..whats not to like. The staff is patient and friendly. They clearly enjoy their jobs. Stop by and walk around for an hour!
  • Beautiful architecture in a pretty area. They had some art exhibits and a great exhibition on Louis Armstrong which are all free, but I wish there was more about the actual mint.
