I took two tour that led me to this house (the French quarter history and the ghost tour). There is a long history of mishaps involving it and it is worth visiting.

For something different to do in New Orleans, consider visiting the Beauregard-Keyes House. Tours are given on the hour and since there seems to be only one volunteer in the house at a time, the door is locked and you'll need to be on time!...More

The Visitors Center recommended this attraction but when we showed up at 5 minuets past the hour we discovered that only guided tours were given and only on the hour. We rang the bell hoping to join the tour but nobody responded. Plan accordingly

Hi Mike, Thank you so much for coming! Our tours are, indeed, guided by a host of volunteer docents. We often only have one docent on hand, and it's unfair to the tour groups to stop their tours. I do apologize for any inconvenience!

Take a tour of the place for only $10.00 early day hours, from 10AM (I think), till 3PM (I think). It has its own personal histories dating back to the original owner (a chess champion), Paul Morphy. Even P.G.T. lived their before Francis Parkinson. It...More

Really enjoyed the history of the people and events associated with the house. Rosanna, our guide, was wonderful and brought to life the story of the place and New Orleans.

If you have extra time, it would be worth visiting this museum house. I thought an hour tour was more than it needed but you have no choice since it is a guided tour.

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

I think it must. They only let you into the house at certain limited times, and then the door is locked and everyone inside goes on the tour. You can't just wander around by yourself.
