Take a tour of the place for only $10.00 early day hours, from 10AM (I think), till 3PM (I think). It has its own personal histories dating back to the original owner (a chess champion), Paul Morphy. Even P.G.T. lived their before Francis Parkinson. It...More

Really enjoyed the history of the people and events associated with the house. Rosanna, our guide, was wonderful and brought to life the story of the place and New Orleans.

If you have extra time, it would be worth visiting this museum house. I thought an hour tour was more than it needed but you have no choice since it is a guided tour.

Another lovely home in the French Quarter to tour. The home was decorated for Christmas, making it more magical. The docent was knowledgeable about the multiple past residents. This is a nice break from the hustle and bustle of the town.

French Quarter
A small and teeming network of laissez-faire living
lounged out on the balmy banks of the Mighty
Mississippi, the French Quarter has long been a port
of call for folks in search of a good time and a great
story. Perpetually inebriated Bourbon Street runs
across its midriff like a strand of cheap ribbon tied
around an otherwise rather pretty and impressively
well-kept vintage dress. Throughout the rest of the

I think it must. They only let you into the house at certain limited times, and then the door is locked and everyone inside goes on the tour. You can't just wander around by yourself.
