This was my second Confederate museum, the other being in Charleston. Of the two, this was the best. It's all on one floor, probably about 3.000 square feet. Mostly exhibits behind glass, a la early 20th century. The multitude of flags was impressive. One had...More

A real gem. The building itself and its contents complement each other nicely. Worth spending several hours in, unique insight into the role of the state during the Civili War via memorabilia. Not far away from the WWII Museum. Withing walking distance from Springhill Suites.

For the price of a donation, spend an hour viewing rare and one-of-a-kind civil war memorabilia and the story that goes with it. Focusing on Louisiana, you'll understand the roll the State played in the uprising and how their efforts, and defeats, formed their destiny...More

very nice little museum dwarfed by the nearby WWII Museum. Beautiful architecture and interesting displays make this a good experience to learn more about the history of New Orleans.

Beautiful woodwork. Great little museum with rare artifacts and other civil war memorabilia. No photography though.

I think the coolest thing about this museum is that most of the items on display came from the families of the soldiers who wanted their loved ones to be honored and recognized by future generations of Americans. The admission fee is reasonable.

Nice exhibit but you must be into the civila war to attend or you will be disappointed. Gives a unique perspective on Louisianna's role in the civil war

There are lot of relics from the civil war. But it’s all shattered over the place. I really miss some kind of storyboard telling which guides me to the civil war and connects me with all the great relics in the museum. There is a...More

First hand look at actual uniforms, arms, etc. from the civil war. It really gives one a sence of the era. The younger generation should be required to tour this museum. ESPECIALLY since so many of the historical statues have been taken down by stupid...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
