  • I think this museum is really nicely organized and I liked the flow. The exhibits at the time (Aug 2022) want them most exciting to be honest. It's small, you can probably finish washing the whole thing in about an hour. I don't think it's worth the price of the ticket but I'm glad I went. I would visit again if I saw something interesting being shown.
  • I love this museum! I would visit every time I visit NOLA. Such a great collection. The staff were very friendly and so helpful!!! I enjoyed every floor and all of the window views. The balcony was nice as well.
