Visiting Louis' house was an amazing experience. It's not some huge celebrity mansion, it's a fairly modest family house in a residential street, but every aspect inside was created by the Armstrong's for their comfort and it's a place that they obviously loved being. Louis...More

This is an intimate look at the lives for Louis and Lucille Armstrong. Lovingly cared for and curated by Queens College CUNY. My favorite rooms are the kitchen and bathroom. Great tour with audio clips in each room.
