Located in the Tremé neighborhood of New Orleans, this museum is a must for insight into the black community of New Orleans. Focus of the tour is the Mardi Gras Indians. Costumes on display reflect the detail in the costumes, which are hand-made by the participant wearing it. The color and creativity are astounding, and the hours of work each required is obvious. But the costumes are just the start - the communities of African Americans in New Orleans are reflected in the traditions and activities of many groups, including the Mardi Gras Indians, jazz funerals, social aid & pleasure clubs, Baby Dolls, and Skull and Bone gangs. The tour is only able to scratch the surface of the history of this community, but it definitely made me want to find out more.
