My family knew we wanted more New Orleans historical eye candy, but where? We needed someone to steer us in the right direction. We found that individual locally as we sipped drinks before our dinner reservations at a cute place called Goodfriends. A charming, knowledgable and passionate young man who knows what he is talking about and loves to share... More

This isn't a place you will probably spend a lot of time but it has some interesting exhibits, and pieces of history. It is pleasant inside and also has some nice and reasonably priced gifts/souveniers

The HNOC is something that many people overlook. They have interesting programs and exhibits that change from time to time. Don't miss this....you'll enjoy it.

I am a history buff and I was thrilled to travel through time in NOLA. The exhibits were well done and I learned lots about the history of the area. I must see!

We told our friends that we were going to have a quick look at this museum and we would meet them in 20 minutes on the next corner. 20 minutes later we met them and said we would probably be at least an hour more and we would catch up somewhere. We ended up spending nearly two more hours in... More

This museum has been growing for a number of years. It is located in the heart of the quarter and is one of the few places you can see and understand how the architecture of the quarter developed over the years. The Williams House is a great way to tour what a very nice home in the quarter looks like... More

Loved it and recommend it to anybody wanting to know a... More

The music is hot and the temperature is hotter!!! Get here early so you can actually get a seat. Grab something cool to drink because this place is sweltering!
