Lovely House Museum

Worth visiting - has great history. House plus collections and a garden. Well worth a tour. Across street from the historic church/nunnery so plan time to do both!

A tour of this house is a great introduction to the different architectural styles in the French Quarter and greater New Orleans. The tour packs a lot into a short amount of time.

A very short tour with only two people and the guide, it was more eerie than enjoyable. Of all the things I enjoyed in New Orleans, this is one I wish I had passed up on. Often I enjoy historical tours and architecture, but this was a lackluster experience.

This is a perfect example of what it was like for a Creole family of wealth to live like in the early 1800's before the Americans began arriving. It will show you the gentility of the period and how their society was of all importance to them and New Orleans as it developed to be a premier port city in... More

The guided tour of the house and grounds was excellent - the best I attended in New Orleans. The guide was informative and friendly - he is a great example of southern hospitality.

The tour in this house is modest and matter of fact but the spectacular comes from the visitor gaining understanding of how people lived 200 years ago. A must do for everyone who wants to learn how well to do people lived in the New Orleans of two centuries ago

Had the opportunity to visit this historic home, and had the luxury of a private tour. Very interesting history, and a truly beautiful home. Glad we made the decision to visit.

If you love to visit older homes with antiques, then this would be great. If you're like us who just want to visit things, it wasn't all that interesting.

I saw this home while on a self-guided tour hosted by the Friends of the Cabildo (FOC) and was delighted. It's a beautiful home with period furniture and decorations. We were fortunate to have been guided by a very knowledgeable lady in period dress.

This house is across from the old Ursuline Convent. Our guide was very knowledgeable about the house and residents. He encourage my daughter to play the 18th century piano. Very enjoyable couple of hours

Staying in French Quarter

Neighborhood Profile
French Quarter
A small and teeming network of laissez-faire living lounged out on the balmy banks of the Mighty Mississippi, the French Quarter has long been a port of call for folks in search of a good time and a great story. Perpetually inebriated Bourbon Street runs across its midriff like a strand of cheap ribbon tied around an otherwise rather pretty and impressively well-kept vintage dress. Throughout the rest of the Quarter, brightly colored Victorian homes and businesses, famously done up with wrought-iron features, provide a distinct and immediately recognizable backdrop for all varieties of fun. At any given moment in this historic riverside setting, some of America’s finest meals are being cooked, most potent cocktails are being mixed, and most engaging music is being performed.
