Le Musée de Free People of Color is an important intervention. While many New Orleans tour guides tell stories of how the French and Spanish built New Orleans, they marginalize the histories of people of African descent and indigenous communities. This museum preserves the records...More

This small house museum is a must-see. The history of the free people of color in New Orleans is fascinating, but it has not, historically, been well-documented. This museum has managed an impressive collection, and our guide was immensely knowledgeable. You will end this tour...More

That sound? That flavor? That certain je ne sais quoi
that lets you known you’re in “Nawlins” and nowhere
else? It’s all good and in broad abundance on the
streets of Tremé, where so much of what’s considered
to be the very best of New Orleans culture and
tradition is, put simply, just how people go about
their daily lives in this historic part of town. As
one of America’s oldest African-American neighborhoods
