Another interesting and delightful way to spend an hour looking round a New Orleans private house (no longer lived in) and being provided with an understanding of how (well to do) people - Beauregard was a prominent Confederate general - lived in the city. The guide was excellent and very informative. The house is opposite the Old Ursuline Convent.

If there were ever a must place to visit in the French Quarter the Keyes House is it. First, it gives one a taste of what it must have been like to actually live in the Quarter. Secondly, the interior is just beautifully decorated. Don't leave without a visit here.

The tour guide was very friendly and knowledgeable. He was also very frank about living in the french quarter, currently and in the past. I appreciated his honesty. There was no sugar coating things. He did however had good gossip type information. He was very funny. I plan to return. The gift shop had some good book deals.

That is why rich people are important, beautiful preserved home restored by France Parkinson Keyes She restored and maintained this beautiful home while also being an author, plenty of period furniture. Worth a look, the guide was very knowledgeable and pleasant

I absolutely loved this home! It has such a fascinating history, and the garden is beautiful. I love that you can rent out the courtyard for receptions and gatherings. This is a must when visiting NO.

We stumbled upon the museum as we left the Old Ursaline Convent across the street. We were pretty early for the next tour - done on the hour from 10-3. And it's very much on the hour - the door did not open until right at 3. Fortunately we had a wonderful porch to sit on and enjoy the breeze... More

The house was lovely and the tour guide was very good. But the most interesting was the varied history of the residents of the house -- from Civil War general to celbrated author to a Mafia shooting! Well worth the price.

On an evening in May, friends were married in this historic venue in the French Quarter! What a beautiful and spacious setting for a wedding! there are courtyards, gardens, and, museum attractions, all located within this space. The wedding was beautifully executed in the garden, and, the reception was lavishly prepared inside the main house. The slave quarters are available... More

House was beautiful but tour by Robert made it unique and interesting. As it was Mrs. Keyes birthday they even had cookies and cupcakes to celebrate. Garden was very pretty.

A hidden gem in the French Quarter, but worth making a destination. A lovely old home with an interesting past. Beautiful garden enhances the tour. Does not take long to go through so easy to fit into your day..

Staying in French Quarter

Neighbourhood Profile
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 Quarter, brightly colored Victorian homes and businesses, famously done up with wrought-iron features, provide a distinct and immediately recognizable backdrop for all varieties of fun. At any given moment in this historic riverside setting, some of America’s finest meals are being cooked, most potent cocktails are being mixed, and most engaging music is being performed.
