    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.

    Great building with mint history on the first floor and a jazz museum on the second floor. They do live jazz on the 3rd floor but i didn't have time to see a show.

    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.

    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.

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.
