Nice location, clean bathrooms, friendly helpful staff, lots of history and great exhibits. Moderately priced and a great way to enjoy a few hours in the historic area.

Found this by accident but enjoyed the displays and maps showing the history of New Orleans. The assistants were very helpful and enjoyed showing you the exhibits.

The Historic New Orleans Collection will give you rewards on every visit. The courtyard concerts and the changing exhibitions are special to locals and visitors. Touring the adjacent home gives a unique perspective on the hidden glories of the French Quarter.

A very interesting museum in the heart of the French Quarter and it is Free! I loved the display regarding the Northern occupation of NOLA during the Civil War, but the history of Louisiana was also very interesting.

I went into this museum on the guided $5 tour principally because I wanted to see what one of the homes inside the FQ looked like. This home was donated to the city by General Kempner after his death and contains many of his and wife's possessions. It's small but quaint. I enjoyed the tour very much.

Another of the many museums in NOLA. We went to many of them and this was one of our favorites. Historical artifacts, a nice shop and knowledgable staff.

What a fabulous surprise. There are many, many places to see on a New Orleans visit. This collection is outstanding. I visit many museums and enjoy them all. But sometimes it is great to find an excellent venue that doesn't take three hours or more and totally overwhelm! It is within walking distance of many hotels and attractions. Be sure... More
