  • This is a beautifully curated townhouse on Jackson Square, which is like stepping back 150 years, to see how the movers and shakers lived at that time. There's also a very nice museum shop we enjoyed.

  • This museum is worth a stop, though it is not an extensive museum. You'll come away with a better understanding of what it was like to have money and to live on Jackson Square in the mid 1800s.
  • Get here in the morning and enjoy the museum, the store and by all means the walking tour! 2-2:30h around the city learning, exploring and collecting ideas about what it is New Orleans. Thanks Charlie for the excellent tour.
