Hermann-Grima House is amazingly preserved and restored and gives an almost interactive look at how New Orleanians lived in the city's early history. Great experience for all ages, tourist and locals, alike.

A nice short introduction to New Orleans history in the French quarter. In one hour you learn a lot about the history and traditions of Creole . A quick one tour on the AC! Recommend !

This museum was great! It gives you a look into two different families in two different periods of New Orleans history. The original furnishings and reproductions are exquisite! Highly recommended!

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

It's under 16.00 per person (15-something). It's a really good tour and gives you so much historical details about the.e house, the family, the era, and about New Orleans. I highly recommend this one.

Not when I went, but you are free to ask the guide questions. We were the only ones on our tour, so it felt more custom to our individual interests. I'd email them to see if you could focus on her in your tour.
