We visited the museum as part of a tour group. The displays on the inside of the building were a bit overwhelming at first. The friendly and informative volunteer tour guides from the museum helped us understand the breadth of activity that goes into putting on a Mardi Gras celebration. The costumes worn by past royalty were stunning, and filled... More

I only had 2 days in Bossier City and I was so looking forward to seeing this museum. I checked the hours ahead of time and they were closed when it said they were going to be opened. I called and got a recording and left a message to find out more information and no one returned my call. From... More

I am a member of the Krewe of Gemini in Bossier City, Louisiana. I am not partial to this museum because I belong to the Krewe that started it but because it is definitely the best place to see and experience Mardi Gras in Northwest Louisiana. Come join us for our parade, bal, float loading, the best in NW Louisiana.

If you want to go back in time to the start of Mardi Gras in the Ark-La-Tex the Mardi Gras Museum is a great place to start. The largest collection of Mardi Gras costumes and memorabilia in all of North Louisiana. A must for every tourist.

It is amazing to me to see all of the time, energy, design, talent and love that goes into each facet of Mardi Gras. The preservation of items now should inspire all who take the time to visit this museum , as well as, others around the state or states.

Mardi Gras Museum - Krew of Gemini, Bossier City, Louisiana. Very interesting place. Opened just a couple of years ago. It keeps all the regalia of previous year’s carnivals. Lots of beautiful costumes. The attendant was very clear in his explanations of the history of the Krew of Gemini (started 1989) and their charity work during the year. Also a... More
