A small but interesting slice history (of Civil War) from the Southern perspective. The artifacts were numerous and well displayed.

I really enjoyed visiting this gem. Tucked away, almost unnoticed next to the World War II Museum across the street, it's in a historic building built for Confederate veterans. Lots of great artifacts, such as Jefferson Davis's portmanteau and such. Very educational.

Spent an hour and a half here taking in all of the exhibits. This is not a large museum but totally worth the admission and interesting to see.

Coming from a Union State, it was very interesting to hear about the Civil War from the Southern perspective. There is a nice video to watch first and then many artifacts to view including an old piano and some of General Lee's possessions. It is...More

This architecture of this building is great. It is not a large museum (only one floor) but has a great collection of civil war artifacts. It opened its doors in 1891 making it the oldest museum in Louisiana. Many items on display were donated by...More

Arts District / Warehouse District
Once a thriving industrial zone, today this district
is home to a buzzing arts scene with an amazing
assortment of galleries, boutiques, and studios having
moved in and set up shop throughout the disused
warehouses for which the area is so well known. Much
of the art you'll come across here is local in scope,
ownership and inspiration. However, among the many old
brick warehouses are modern structures of steel and
