Definitely a place to stop while you're in New Orleans. The jazz and mint exhibits were very interesting and showcased local history. On the day we went, there was a very good jazz band playing.

If you go to Frenchmen St. or the French Market, be sure to stop by the Jazz Museum. The history, art, and, music are supreme. Watch out for the uneven floors and skip the mint exhibit unless you are into coins.

After walking through the Market, we saw the Jazz and Mint Museums. We decided to go at $8 per person. It was great to see the photos and interactive exhibits of drums.

We were wandering around the French Quarter and came upon the museum. It's small and without the free concert would probably disappoint a lot of people. However, the history of the mint was interesting as well as the jazz exhibits which included Prof. Longhair, Louis...More

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
