It was great to see the respite Louis & Lucille Armstrong created for themselves. They could have lived anywhere but chose to live there. It was nice to see how simply they lived. Granted it was decorated in the 1960s, but I liked to see...More

Any fan of Louis Armstrong MUST visit this iconic museum. The tour guides are excellent and informative. Mrs Armstrong saved much of Louie's artifacts and on display. Original music is played during the tour.

This unassuming house in the middle of Corona is the only house that the great Louis Armstrong ever owned. It is a walk through history. My favorite rooms were his library/study and the kitchen, which is turquoise. The house has been beautifully maintained. You can...More

Take a trip to Corona. Subway 7 takes you quite near to Louis Armstrong's home, where he lived from the end of the forties to his death in 1971. Now you are in a totally different setting than Manhatten. Everybody seems to speak spanish and...More

You wouldn't think such a place would exist in Corona, but it does, and how fabulous it is. Fans of Jazz and Mr. Armstrong will be enthralled at how well preserved the house is. The kitchen and the office are my favorite parts. It was...More

This is a simple tour of the house Louis Armstrong and wife living in for a very long time. Not a fancy house but obviously suited to their lives. I recommend for the serious jazz history buff

Two Key Take-aways: 1) While waiting for the tour, read Louis Armstrong's poignant letter, under glass in the basement museum adjacent to his gold record plaque. Armstrong describes the fruits of living in his simple home, in a working class neighborhood and why he never...More

Be prepared to enter an interactive time capsule. Louis's home is kept at its peak splendor of the time (40's - 70's). You'll feel like it's 1972. Sound recordings of Louis provide the welcome tones of Louis's voice and thoughts. Additionally, the guide we had...More

Given the celebrity culture we live in, it’s hard to imagine one of the world’s best-known and most recognizable musicians living in a modest house in an unremarkable neighbourhood and being treated as just another resident. Granted, Louis Armstrong was on the road for up...More
