We visited this museum for two reasons; one, it was recommended by our Save Our Cemeteries tour guide as a good historic view of New Orleans and two, we’ve never been to a wax museum. We were able to join, by periphery, a tour with...More

This brought back a lot of memories. We both took field trips to this museum a couple of times. It gives you a great visual of Louisiana history. It's going to close in January so don't miss out!!
