A tiny place hidden on Duval Street. Takes a "donation" to walk through the house. A cool little stop if you are cruising down Duval.

This museum starts out on a cheesy note but really improves pretty quickly. Great look into the business of wrecking. Very interesting facts and history of this somewhat questionable trade. Finishes with a great view of the island from the tower.

Loved this little find on Duval Street, we almost missed it. Free and has public restrooms open during the day. This is a great place to stop and rest at during the day. Very small,very old, very cute home

Neat tour of the property - it's free, but you can leave a donation! The guide was very knowledgeable and gave a great history of the place!

I enjoyed this quaint little house and it's gardens. It was surprising how quiet there is inside although it is located in a busy and noisy street. It only takes a few moments to see it but it was nice and relaxing. Wish the upstairs had been open to the public too. Best of all it was free and a... More

Besides the house there are interesting, educational facilities on the property, such as the Cook's House and historical information boards. There... More

Not living the island life, it was interesting learning some of the stories and what the families went through in the past. The home was actually moved from another location at some point and was fascinating to see some of the old items I've never seen before. Not a must see but its free and I felt like it was... More
