So given that New Orleans is kind of a mecca for jazz, I found this particular venue quite underwhelming. The admission price was modest enough ($8 for adults) and included a few displays from the New Orleans US Mint. But outside of that, the museum displays were kind of primitive and limited, and a large portion of the museum was actually dedicated to paintings by Noel Rockmore and his daughter, Emilie Rhys. And this is fine, but even the portions that were dedicated to jazz consisted mostly of photos of musicians and a handful of instruments and records. I did not feel immersed in jazz, and did not even leave the venue wanting to listen to jazz. Because the museum was housed in the old US Mint, there were a few displays in the basement of coins and coin pressing machines and balances. There is no place to check in a coat or packages, so if you happen to visit on a day that you bought a lot of souvenirs from the French Market, you'll have to carry it around with you.

I came for the jazz museum, and got to see the mint museum on the first floor as a bonus. But it was the jazz I was interested in. Interesting collection of musical instruments and other memorabilia and exhibits.

We did not realize going in that there are basically two museums in one but the mint museum on the first floor is also interesting. We had a mixed bag of reviews of the museum from our group but overall is definitely worth a visit. I was expecting something much for intensive and with a broader scope than what we saw. What is there was informative. We were just expecting a little more.

Tuesdays, at this time, host concerts on the porch of the museum. Find a table outside a restaurant or coffee shop and enjoy the free music.

Enjoyed spending an hour or two here. Some great artifacts and recordings - plus you get a bonus visit through what was the US Mint at NO. Big display of Professor Longhair - seems to be a favorite of the curator. Drumville was cool. I'm into drumming so getting to learn about the roots of modern jazz drumming was interesting. They had some very old drum kits on display.
