If you are a decoy collector you must see the private collection displayed here! Painting and other items. Free admission! We loved our visit. Staff very helpful and friendly.

The Historic New Orleans Collection is a great low-cost way to get a quick glimpse of New Orleans history and culture. When we visited they asked for a donation, but it is not required. They also have have a lovely gift shop with great items from local artisans.

Delightful museum on busy Royal St in historic buildings. Enthusiastic docents. Paintings, maps, furniture, furnishings, clippings, decoys new and old. Tip: clean WCs in a barren area

This museum has interesting artifacts but they are presented in a non-dynamic way. It's hard to take in the information as it is now displayed.

We were directed to the Collection's Museum Shop by Sam the Hat Man at Meyer the Hatter. This shop also conducts research and maintains a publishing house, and their translation from the French and subsequent reprint of "A Company Man" from the original purchased at Sotheby's (I think) is a definitive work on the history of colonial Louisiana. The shop also carries many items, many handmade locally, representing New Orleans and Louisiana. Besides the book, we purchased a fleur-de-lis bow tie and King Cake baby earrings. We did not visit the collection in the museum, but it will definitely be on our list of activities for our next New Orleans visit!
