  • The permanent collection is as dull as molasses, but if you are in town before the end of the Propect4 show, make this a stop. They have some great spaces and showed a lot of artists. I sincerely hope...  more »

  • Such a cool place. It's now a museum for art exhibits, and it has some of the most amazing New Orleans art history type stuff. This was one of my favorite places. Free to visit, and you can see and learn so much!!
  • Nice exhibition detailing the historical aspects of the mint. On the small side but it's cheap for the featured exhibition which was on the history of jazz when I was there. Recommended if you want a quieter experience in New Orleans
  • Small musuem. Good place to spend an hour or so. Interesting exhibit on how money was produces there
  • Wonderful almost hidden museum go check it out. Also a host to many festivals. Great AC if you need to cool down
  • The mint was very interesting. It not only showed you how the money was made and the equipment that was used, but it also has a Jazz museum on the second floor as well. The museum is free, and it does not take very long to go through it, about 1.5 - 2 hours, if you take time to read all the exhibits. Also a very nice place to go to get out of the heat.

Where to stay in New Orleans

Though you can walk to most tourist attractions in New Orleans from a hotel in the central business district, remember that many other parts of town feature less expensive and equally comfortable accommodations. Smaller hotels and private guesthouses in quiet residential neighborhoods offer not only good local food and spacious rooms, but can also allow you to explore the city's culture away from overwhelming tourist crowds. To reduce your carbon footprint during your stay, consider one of French Quarter's many green or eco-friendly hotels.
