  • If you're someone who just enjoy being surrounded by greenery this may be the place for you,however, in the otherhand if you're looking for a stunning, eye catching, beautiful blossoming flowers then you may not. I really like the spacious areas which can be quite serene and if you have small kids they can run around while you have a picnic, but unfortunately many of the greenery is just not well kept and the fountains were not either working or just not on. Not to mention the fountains that contained water in them could use some cleaning. One of the ladies that greeted us was very informative and nice. Nevertheless, if you like history go for it, you just might like it more than me!
  • This is a another awesome thing to do in New Orleans. It was really beautiful and amazing đŸ˜‰ If you like to know how to build the house or get some idea about the house, this is a good place to do. They provide a guide tour to explain everything inside for you. I paid $12 for regular person and $8 for student in USA.
