Madame John's Legacy is a historic house museum at 632 Dumaine Street in the French Quarter of New Orleans, Louisiana. Completed in 1788, it is one of the oldest houses in the French Quarter, and was built in the older French colonial style, rather than the more current Spanish colonial style of that time. It was declared a National Historic Landmark in 1970 for its architectural significance. The Louisiana State Museum owns the house and provides tours.

One of the last three remaining French architectural houses in New Orleans
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!
Strangers Disease performance is amazing
Free museum to look around. One of only three remaining buildings from the French period. The listed hours are only a guideline, if no one has come in for a few hours they close up. I don't blame them, to keep this place free of charge to enter, certain things like 'listed hours' will be different. If they are closed, please don't be upset. There aren't to many things to do in New Orleans for free.
Very nice building, free to enter, not a long of interpretive information.
Great place to go! Very interesting and incredible.
Self guided tour but very interesting
Very nice building, free to enter, not a lot of interpretive information.
