Best explanation of what happened during hurricane Katrina. Although a bit out of the way, bus stop right there. Working on a flooded house museum next door.

This outdoor display is free and open to the public during daylight hours. It consists of six large signs that detail the history of levee creation and why the city levees failed during Katrina. It is probably the most comprehensive details of levee failure from the museums I have seen in the city and helped me understand a little better. The reality though is the entire exhibit consists of a few lackluster signs. The garden isn't really a garden. It is just a few plants. If you are a local and have 10 minutes to kill, stop by. If you are a tourist, you can do better things with your time.

The drive through the neighborhood was rather eerie. There are new homes going up, but there are many lots where there is only a faint hint of the home that once stood there. Several houses are still boarded up after ten+ years. The displays and grounds are well cared for. The displays are informative, but the drive through the neighborhood says as much about Katrina and the people of New Orleans.

I biked a few extra miles to see this, but looking back I probably wouldn't have, had I known exactly what it was. The "Exhibit hall and garden" consist of six panels containing text and photos (see pics) on a landscaped platform. The significance of the location is that this is where one of the levees failed due to it's poor design. While the info was interesting, i probably could have read it online. What was more interesting and immersive was bicycling through the neighborhoods that experienced the flood, while traveling to the exhibit. Even as of now, much debris remains, and the neighborhoods are still rebuilding. Levees.org is based in a building next door and the info in the panels (and more) is available on their website. Without reading from another source, it was hard to tell if they're biased against the Army Corps of Engineers, since they seemed to consistently place the blame for flooding on the ACE in various ways. Not to say they're biased or wrong, but it's hard to tell without doing my own research.

This is the newest park in New Orleans, opened summer of 2015. It features exhibits showing failure of the levee system in New Orleans right next to the London Ave Canal. This is what you need to see when in New Orleans to understand the impact of Hurricane Katrina.
