Every member in Congress, every high schooler needs to see this. This is a true 5 Star Museum that tells a great story of time that should never be forgotten.

All you need to know and good food to eat too. I spent the entire day there and like I said I ate lunch and it was delicious! Another must is the movie for $7 more.

This is a great museum to spend a few hours touring at your own pace. We went with our 19 year old son, who said it was the highlight of his trip to New Orleans. We enjoyed taking a break at eating at the restaurant...More

Arts District / Warehouse District
Once a thriving industrial zone, today this district
is home to a buzzing arts scene with an amazing
assortment of galleries, boutiques, and studios having
moved in and set up shop throughout the disused
warehouses for which the area is so well known. Much
of the art you'll come across here is local in scope,
ownership and inspiration. However, among the many old
brick warehouses are modern structures of steel and

Yes! Active, Retired and Vets get a discount. I believe it was 50% off. If you stay in or around the French Qtr it is an easy walk of about 6-7 blocks, all in decent neighborhoods.
