This is in the heart of the Treme and in an old house, with a gentleman I think perhaps as old as the house. It was incredible because I felt I was able to sit and listen to stories and learning about the neighborhood, the Mardi Gras Indians from a person who has lived it! The curator is from the Treme, lives there, lived there all of his life...in addition to the amazing costume collection of the Mardi Gras Indians. Plus a history lesson on the treme, plus information about the local politics surrounding the area! It is a must!
