Madame John's Legacy is a historic house museum at 632 Dumaine Street in the French Quarter of New Orleans, Louisiana.

It was declared a National Historic Landmark in 1970 for its architectural significance.

This is a great historical building to visit in New Orleans! It's a free museum!! Most of the museums in New Orleans are not free. While there are not a lot of exhibits in this Museum there is some information about the history of the house the architecture and uses for each of the rooms. While we were there there was also a really great exhibit on the Newcomb College Pottery school with lots of different examples of the different styles of pottery the school put out. I I think this museum is not to be missed. If you're walking around the French quarter then you absolutely should go here!
Great place to go! Very interesting and incredible.
