Although it's closed I have heard that there was a rumor that they'll be opening in a new location... I truly hope that they do we open somewhere else because the museum was absolutely phenomenal the wax Creations were truly lifelike

The location has closed, but the figures and display pieces have been saved. Museum will re-open at a new location in 2018.

We visited this museum for two reasons; one, it was recommended by our Save Our Cemeteries tour guide as a good historic view of New Orleans and two, we’ve never been to a wax museum. We were able to join, by periphery, a tour with...More

It's too bad this place is closing the end of January 2016. I attended a wedding upstairs and it is a great venue place. When you have a venue there, you get full access to walk around and see the wax figure displays. This is...More

This brought back a lot of memories. We both took field trips to this museum a couple of times. It gives you a great visual of Louisiana history. It's going to close in January so don't miss out!!
