The Hermann–Grima House is a historic house museum in the French Quarter of New Orleans, Louisiana. The meticulously restored home reflects 19th century New Orleans. It is a handsome Federal-style mansion with courtyard garden, built in 1831. It has the only extant horse stable and 1830s open-hearth kitchen in the French Quarter.
The house has been restored to its original splendor through archaeological studies and careful review of the building contract and inventories. The house is recognized as one of the earliest examples of American architecture in the French Quarter. The restoration accurately depicts the gracious lifestyle of a prosperous Creole family. Approximately one-half of the collection can be sourced to original families.

Beautiful house. Great history. Guides are knowledgeable and engaging. Had a blast learning about the Hermann and Grima families who once called it home.

Friendly, knowledgeable staff. Very cool historical home full of furnishings from the time period. Worth a stop if you like to see how people used to live.

They offer a guided tour starting on the hour, group size is only 3-7 people per tour. Very intimate knowledge of the family history, the guide spoke of them as if she were speaking about her own family. The passion she had for the topics was beautiful and inspiring. You'll get to see period correct pieces throughout the estate, and about 40% is actually original to the family. Walking from room to room you start to get a sense of what it might of been like living in the 1800s, as the enslaved and the super wealthy. Very emotional. They've done a great job preserving and presenting the authenticity of the house and it's history. If you're visiting New Orleans, it's absolutely worth the time and money. Entire tour took about 50 minutes and ended in a cute gift shop!
