    Really loved this museum! It is impressively huge and takes a while to get through (plan for half a day at least) but there is so much to see and learn. It felt very personal and the amount of research and dedicated put into it is very admirable. Good Job, Y'all!

    We have been to French Quarter many times, but never knew about Frenchman Street and BMC. So much better than Bourban Street for these mature travelers.. BMC was the best!!

    We visit New Orleans 3 times a year. When we arrive we always pick up some great New Orleans chicken and eat in the park. It's a great place to sit & relax & njoy the views

    Lovely quiet square to visit on a Sunday morning. People just strolling or reading the paper. Very relaxing.

    This was my first visit to New Orleans and the French Quarter. It was a mix bag of awesomeness and outrage. The music, food, tours, architecture and rich culture was profound and educational. The tour guides and story tellers were both a highlight and a delight. We got incredibly knowledgeable and fact based stories about the city’s rich culture, and the dark inhumane history, no sugar coating added. On the other hand, it seemed like history repeating as I was outraged about the homelessness in the French Quarter and many other areas. The drunks, addicts and victims of Covid and the economy were lined up in tents, makeshift beds and living spaces under the street bridges, grassy patches of the Mississippi River, in parks and doorways of homes and businesses. Such a despicable contrast of wealth and unimaginable poverty. Homelessness is not new news in New Orleans, it’s just gotten worse. And I expect it will shamefully continue. Maybe the people reading this review should include the politicians, decision makers, money makers and everyone else, to say “enough is enough already!! Oh, and I might add, if I had read about the crime and murder rate in New Orleans before my trip, 205 homicides as of September 2022. I may have reconsidered visiting. You see the offenders realize the odds are in their favor bc in the last 3 years with police cuts, crime has gone up. New Orleans may be on a pace to reclaim its ranking of the most murderous city in the US. Is the city of New Orleans bent on keeping up with its treacherous past and despicable treatment of the less desirable humans? We inquiring tourists want to know!!

    We have been many times and it is always a unique and nice experience. Just a great bunch of musicians with a nice way about them. The only reason I didn't give it five bubbles is because I think the price has just gotten too expensive for only 45 minutes each set, but that is just my opinion.

    This was an excellent visit! Firstly they offer a FREE shuttle for pick up and drop off! Once you arrive you see a 15 minute or so film on the history of Mardi Gras and how the Kern family business was born and how integral a part of the parades they are! Then you get to sample King Cake!!! You get to see the artists as they create and build the floats and decorations. I highly recommend!!!

    We had a great time learning about New Orleans, from important people to the history and culture that make it such a unique city. Tour guide was excellent too. (Also the tombs provided a decent amount of shade during our 3:30 tour.)

    Get a $3 day pass and explore New Orleans! The Green line takes you along St. Charles Street and once outside the downtown area, you'll see the beautiful Southern-style homes. You can also visit Audubon Park, Tulane and Loyola Universities, and great food spots outside the French Quarter. The streetcars (don't say "trolley"!) on the green line are old-fashioned, with windows that go up and down and wooden seats--a fun experience!

    Amazingly beautiful church, inside and out. Beautiful stained glass windows and artwork on the ceiling. Gregorian chants were also beautiful.

    We were the only people we saw when we visited, nice .5 mile to mile trails, saw gators, crazy spiders, crickets and birds. Our son was able to do a little fishing here.
