To get a feeling for the South, take in the Memorial Hall. It walks you through the confederate side of the war, which was a bloody one. Lots of information, Very little said about slavery, which I think would be a centre piece to reconciliation, but all in all worthwhile visit.

Wonderful place to spend an morning or afternoon, learning the REAL story of The War. None of that PC- written by the winners crap they teach in school (or used to...now they ignore it all.)

With the impending removal of local civil war monuments, we hope this place will remain to tell the story. An architectural treasure, it is a fitting showcase for a wide array of artifacts. Small, but full of attract fully displayed items, there is also a video presentation. The gift shop has a variety of things for men, women and children.

Admission of only $8 and well worth the price. Some of the uniforms of the south's greatest generals are on display and in remarkable condition. Plenty of firearms, swords, etc. Quire a history story in the building itself. If you are at the WW2 museum, this one is next door.

Been to NOLA many times and my friends always recommend visiting. Small but very well done in focusing on Louisiana during the Civil War. Lots of interesting artifacts and walking distance to the WW2 Museum.

If you watch any of the picking shows, you will hear time and time again that confederate artifacts are hard to find. Not at this place. The building itself is beautiful and so is the collection. Everything from uniforms, guns, ammunition, swords and buttons to costumes from Mrs. Davis and personal affects of their children. The list of items to... More

This place had a remarkable number of relics that belonged to President Jefferson Davis. These include his piano, watch case, bibles, and a crown of thorns hand-woven by Pope Pius IX himself.

Very personal stories of young men and their families experiencing the horrors of the Civil War. Lots of very interesting artifacts and a short film that gives you a good insight to how life was in those very hard times.

Staying in Arts District / Warehouse District

Neighbourhood Profile
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 glass housing large-scale cultural institutions of national prominence such as the National World War II Museum, the Contemporary Arts Center, and the Ogden Museum of Southern Art. Just as eye catching as what’s on view inside the galleries and museums is the chance to see your ship come in at the Julia Street Cruise Terminal, which serves as a wistful reminder of the city’s historic maritime prominence.
