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.

    The National WWII Museum is outstanding in every respect. Ticketing is very easy, whether booking in person or online. Transportation is very easy from the French Quarter by trolley, and parking is very convenient if driving. This museum has something for everyone, from young students to WWII veterans and historians. It is well worth the hours you will want to spend at this excellent museum.

    We took the streetcar from the French Quarter to the Garden District. Rode it all the way to the end and got to see all of the beautiful mansions decorated for Mardi Gras. Then we got back on and rode the streetcar to Commander's Palace.

    Energetic and fun with great shopping and dining. Some of the top rated restaurants are here (Arnaud's, Galatoire's, Tableau, Brennans ,etc.) with tasty chicory coffee at Cafe du Monde. There are many little fun shops to explore. The beautiful antique shops are impeccably curated with noteworthy pieces. Frenetic, good energy abounds as you bustle through this vibrant part of town. (I recommend Royal and Decatur streets for great shopping and more civility (our cup of tea) and Bourbon Street for hard, HARD partying.) Enjoy y'all!

    This was one of the highlight of our trips. We stayed at Troubadour and the station for street car was at Tulane. Very convenient, clean and amazing frequency. I would recommend anyone to ride these streetcar to jackson square and french market and not drive as those areas are very crowded and hard to navigate with cars. The street are small too.
    These fare on the streetcars are also very reasonable . so anyone can afford and the crowd is decent. Most drivers are friendly and helpful and those "Jazzy pass" are a boon. I ordered one online and got delivered via USPS in 4-5 business days.

    Such a beautiful cathedral especially for being the oldest within America. Such a spiritual vibe to light a candle and say a prayer.

    One of the best places to visit if you visit NOLA. Do not miss it. Loved , loved the nature and the picturesque scenery. Beautiful , clean park with a nice free sculpture garden. Great place to take pictures and I 100% recommend to everyone. They have a playgorund for kids, Cafe de Monde , paddle boats and kayaks. and icing on the cake is the park is FREE!! Spend few hours here. Its well worth. Also the Streetcar "48" comes all the way to here so you dont have to drive. The streetcar name is Canal st- City park/museum.

    Drove through this area and took some beautiful pictures. I know you can walk around but we found it easier to drive.

    Tour was interesting. We had previously taken the canal st. streetcar to the end to see the large cemeteries. You stroll along on your own. Interesting and we had lots of questions, ie. how they fit so many people in 1 tomb. We took this tour as it is the oldest cemetery and guided, so we would be able to ask questions. Some of our questions were answered, but mostly history/stories on the people buried there. Tour guide rude. Tour 10:45. My son went to restroom at 10:43. Made it back, plenty of time; I understand policy says tours leave on time. I simply said at 10:43, ooh, my son just went to restroom. Response, nasty, was, that's his problem. (wasn't joking btw) I'm rolling along. So that's how it started. How they fit so many in a tomb is fascinating, but I won't spoil it. I did ask how you got to be in the tomb. Did granma/granpa say you could, what if you weren't in your family's good graces, etc. Again, nasty, "family is family". Well not all families get along.....anyway....I stopped asking questions. Glad we took the tour. Was quick and we were able to get the answer we most wondered about. Worth doing.

    This was really cool. You walk in and see a 10 minute video. They offered King Cake afterwards. We then walked into the warehouse and watched a few people working on painting, protecting, carving, the floats. You get to see some older items. The tour lasted about 30 minutes. You then can stroll around and spend more time with the props.
    There is not any parking I saw. Perhaps by the cruise ship area.

    This is located in City Park. It is right next to the Art Museum. Next to a great little kids area. Right by a Cafe Du Monde.
    It is free which is good.
    There were a few groups of college students and a variety of all ages.
    Walking the area on a few paths and bridges over water features. The sculptures are interesting. You can spend anywhere from an hour to a couple depending on how long you want.
    Very relaxing.

    First visit was in 1970 as a student at Tulane. This year we took my grandsons to the park to play after visiting Tulane and Loyola. Something for everyone. Used to run the park every day, now I meander.

    So my wife and I took our 2 year old to the Audubon Zoo in New Orleans recently. We had an amazing time. The weather was great. Everyone was nice. And the entertainment level was through the roof! I was pushing the stroller and we made it over to the gorillas. The big one was super close and you could clearly see how healthy he was. You always hear people saying they feel bad for these animals being trapped in the zoo but I think this place is doing a great job, especially when it comes to feeding them. It was very apparent. Trust me. Okpara, the lone male of the group, was directly in front of us and he turned around and reached down like he was scratching his butt. Only after about 30sec he starts cranking out a long smooth plump juicy turd right into his hand. The crowd started groaning but not me. I knew what was coming next and the anticipation built. The crowd grew louder as they too realized what was happening. He took that vile piece of tubular waste and wrapped his lips right around it and slowly and delicately pushed it in and out of his mouth. He pulled it out and circled his tongue around it like it was ice cream. The crowd was screaming. I’m dying. This was the funniest thing I’d ever seen. Okpara then broke the turd in half and crammed it into each cheek and squished it around like pudding between his teeth. Then he pressed his cheeks and shot it all out onto the ground. He wasn’t done yet. He squatted again and a gallon of rectal juice came flooding out of his hole. All the other gorillas came over and started licking up the diarrhea. Now the females were aroused and the fecal-orgy began. They were doing it upside down and every which way you could think of. The amount of primate-feces I saw that day still boggles the mind. My wife made us leave after Okpara started squirting liquid rectal-juice straight up in the air and letting it land all over his face. We will definitely be coming back. Well done New Orleans Zoo. Keep up the good work and don’t change a thing. I’m looking forward to visiting again soon but it’ll be hard to top this trip.

    The free music lecture series at 2 pm almost every day. The staff were great, and the bathrooms were clean. The history talk about the New Orleans area was well worth the time.
