  • Came here today with my wife and dad. This is a beautiful museum, really neat. The lady at the front desk was friendly and recommended us start at the top floor. That exhibit in the 5th floor is mind blowing, well worth it.
  • I love this museum! I would visit every time I visit NOLA. Such a great collection. The staff were very friendly and so helpful!!! I enjoyed every floor and all of the window views. The balcony was nice as well.
