This museum is a beautiful display of our (New Orleanians) culture. The trip down memory lane was incredible.
If you want to learn about the Big Chiefs and Marti Gras Indians, there is no better place. Warm and welcoming
Don't miss the chance to learn about the Mardi Gras Indians and other New Orleans traditions from Mr. Francis' museum!
If you want a unique, local, non tourist trap, this is the place to go. Great collection of New Orlean's history.
Great place to learn more about New Orleans unique history
One of the best places we visited. Mr. Robert is a wealth of knowledge. The costumes are amazing. There's more out there than just Mardi Gras and you can learn about it here.
It's really cool to see those costumes up close. If you have never experienced Mardi gras indians, dont miss this.
It's a tiny little museum that is packed with history. Lots of interesting things to see here. It won't take too long to check out the place but it's well worth the visit.
Great exposure to a lesser known aspect of Mardi Gras culture.
Wow! This place is a must for anyone who really wants to see why New Orleans culture is the way it is. Saw this in the doc by Spike Lee about Katrina and after seeing what the 2nd line history was all about, I knew I had to come pay my respects.
This is a small museum that's packed with a lot of history and culture. We had a lot of questions about the history of Mardi Gras and the staff was able to answer them all. It's definitely a must see if your visiting New Orleans.
This is a great little museum in Treme where lots of Mardi Gras Indians and other culture bearers hang out. The owner will let you take eight photos of the Indian suits and tells lots of stories about the city's culture. This is a great place to hang out on Mardi Gras as the baby dolls, Skull and Bones Gang and various Indian tribes show up.
It doesn't look like much but it is history filled and the family that owns it is so nice. The history is great!
