Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    Excellent option to visit an afternoon with family or friends! Located near the center of New Orleans, it is a beautiful mansion and gardens! We really enjoyed our visit!!

    Came here by trolley from Canal Street next to the French Quarter. Canal street trolley route still severed by the wreckage of the Hard Rock Hotel, so you need to catch the trolley north of the wreckage, about a mile from the center of the French Quarter.

    Leave your stilettos for the nighttime, and wear comfortable shoes, as we walked at least a half mile walk from the trolley stop to get here.

    $8 admission to the gardens, located behind the Art Museum. And right at the entrance is the obligatory gift shop. If you don't want to pay the $8, you can see the outside Sculpture museum area free, and then wander through the 1300 acres of New Orleans Park, checking out the stadiums, ponds, canals. But even a cheap skate like me can afford the $8.

    Some magnificent vistas, walkways, arches, architecture, and water fountains. Came here in January, so no roses in bloom. Wife thrilled by numerous butterflies in the butterfly garden area, the Japanese garden, and the greenhouse full of cactus, making it worthwhile for one of us.

    Highlight of the day for me was seeing the model train, with a circular track running maybe 150 feet through miniature sections of the city, complete with houses, buildings, water towers, railway stations, restaurants, and vehicles stopped at the railroad gates. At least they have the track laid out, as we didn't see any trains, let alone trains running today.

    Was told that the train runs on weekends, before the pandemic hit. The city has apparently cut back on garden maintenance, due to the pandemic, so some of the lawns and nurseries are starting to look a little ragged with weeds, just like my back yard!

    $8 admission fee waived on Wednesdays, but for locals only!

    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.

    My wife and I get the box every-other week and it's always full of fresh, local produce and changes per what's in season. We love using the recipes that are sent out each week to use what's in the box, so we're always trying new stuff. We usually also get some fresh baked goods and dairy while we're there. They also have some great vendors on Sunday for brunch, often with some live music, in the garden. This place is awesome!
