During this walking tour, save time with a guide who knows the quickest routes around the Big Easy and brings the folklore and history of the city to life, all during the creepiest time of day—the night.

Seeing how far things have come since Katrina is very inspiring. There are still many vacant lots and houses in disrepair but the ones that have been rebuilt or repaired are painted bright colors the resilience of people is amazing, worth the drive.

Makes a rough neighborhood look a lot better than life was fit these folks. It was a very disadvantaged area for a long time before Katrina. Lots of places are not rebuilt but many of the ones that were were very nice and the neighborhood is changing.

Provides rich context of the lower 9th ward pre and post-Katrina. Excellent history exhibit that contains information relevant to current society - hence the name, "Living History". Take the time to read everything. Great to go on your own. public transit goes straight there.

The Lower 9th is important to the culture & history of New Orleans. A current resident of the ward, Leona Tate, was one of 3 African American 6 year-olds to desegregate the first all-white school, McDonogh No 19, in Louisiana in 1960. She has now purchased the school to create the TEP Center for human rights.

I visited the lower 9th Ward Living Museum today and enjoyed the history the museum portrayed. My parents moved into that house right after I was born in1948. The neighborhood has changed over the years and although lots of pictures are post Hurricane Katrina. The neighborhood was for poor people of all races , not just black residents . I remember living there and seeing Fats Domino pass by the house , since he lived about 5 blocks away. The people running the museum were VERY friendly and made me feel at home
