We did not realize going in that there are basically two museums in one but the mint museum on the first floor is also interesting. We had a mixed bag of reviews of the museum from our group but overall is definitely worth a visit. I was expecting something much for intensive and with a broader scope than what we saw. What is there was informative. We were just expecting a little more.

Tuesdays, at this time, host concerts on the porch of the museum. Find a table outside a restaurant or coffee shop and enjoy the free music.

Enjoyed spending an hour or two here. Some great artifacts and recordings - plus you get a bonus visit through what was the US Mint at NO. Big display of Professor Longhair - seems to be a favorite of the curator. Drumville was cool. I'm into drumming so getting to learn about the roots of modern jazz drumming was interesting. They had some very old drum kits on display.

We are not really jazz lovers and the museum was not high on our list of places to visit prior to coming to New Orleans. We bought the ticket as part of a block of 4 including the Presbytere, Cabilo, and 1850 House and are so glad we did. The main exhibit was on Louis Prima. Not someone we had heard of but learning about, and listening to jazz, through his life story was a fascinating and interesting way to discover more about jazz. There were also separate exhibits on Professor Longhair, drumming, and a number of photographs. A delightful surprise and well worth the visit.

Learned about musicians and artists that I never knew. Also got to see an exhibit of the New Orleans mint. Lots of paintings of jazz musicians.
