  • This is an amazing place. Currently the museum is only using one campus. But there's an exhibit there now Paper Monuments. It is great. All the history in New Orleans is there. Well not all the history. But a lot of it. Especially some of the most impactful stuff.
  • This museum is not worth $20 dollars. A website advertises admission to be $7. However, when you arrive you will be told the site is old and admission is $20 for non-residents. It's just a bunch of pictures that can probably be seen elsewhere. If you are a visiting tourist, visit the Backstreet Cultural Museum for $10 (cash only) not too far from this museum. It has artifacts and similar pictures that are in this museum. Backstreet also makes sure you know what's going on - answering questions, telling stories, etc. Compared to this "museum", where we only saw the girl when we came in to pay.
