Great place to visit. Interesting to watch artists work and to see how it is all done. I don't think my husband wanted to go, but after getting there we enjoyed it! The information given, questions answered were informative. A good little stop, tour, away from the streets of NOLA, as it is in the warehouse district. We took a bus, but got off too far away, so be sure you know the best stop to get closest; seeing how you are continuing to walk around inside. They provided a small lecture with a little surprise at it the day we were there!
It was an awesome to. Everybody so nice entire building so clean. A lot of facts given that I had no idea about. Would recommended to everyone
