This current building, originally home to the New Orleans Branch Mint offers a small display of the Mint and the rest of the museum is dedicated to the history of Jazz. Many pictures of artists, some recording samples to listen to, and a great section...More

The museum is tiny and does not even try to cover the history of jazz. It is a shame that the city that claims to be the birthplace of Jazz can't do better than this sad place.

New orleans is the home of Jazz so it is fitting that Jazz has a home in New Orleans. The exhibits are set out over a couple of floors of the old US Mint building, but maybe something as legendary as this needs more space....More

This is definitely a place to visit while in New Orleans. The exhibits were great. The museum had so much information, photos, events with music, and exhibits of old and new. It was exciting to me as I learned more than I thought I would....More

We enjoyed the exhibits but really liked the free event (Friday 2 pm at present - there may be others). Great music from some of the old time musicians.

Great to see Fats Domino's white grand piano - renovated after Katrina but will never be played again; kind of apt somehow. The Louis Prima exhibition was good, as was that for Professor Longhair. Nice to see Louis Armstrong's first horn!

Beyond our expectations!! One of the most influential interesting museums we have ever visited. The best four hours we have spent gazing at such amazing history of jazz. One of the must see venues in New Orleans.

This is a great experience for jazz lovers. See first Louis Armstrongs' cornet, Professor Longhorn's records and piano, Pete Fountain's clarinet and other jazz memorabilia. It could hold more artefacts, but it is definitely worth coming for all the items which are on display.

French Quarter
A small and teeming network of laissez-faire living
lounged out on the balmy banks of the Mighty
Mississippi, the French Quarter has long been a port
of call for folks in search of a good time and a great
story. Perpetually inebriated Bourbon Street runs
across its midriff like a strand of cheap ribbon tied
around an otherwise rather pretty and impressively
well-kept vintage dress. Throughout the rest of the

We walked and then took an Uber back to the hotel. Might have been a very small lot or on street parking. Not an easy place with a car.
