1850 House Reviews
Great half hour touring the house. Great venue with kids as is not too long. We opted for the tour which was very good . more »
I love how the house is set up so you can see how a typical family lived in the mid 1800s. The furnishings were beautiful and nicely curated. The hair wreath was a little unsettling. more »
Very quick tour, but great history. Loved that they they added soundtracks for the era. So ingenious!!
Was an interesting recreation of a nineteenth century house. Not as interesting as the Cabildo or Louisiana state museum
