History Louisiana Museum New Orleans

The Presbytere – New Orleans, LA

What is it?:
Museum in the French Quarter of Mardi Gras, NOLA/Hurricane Katrina history.

Bottom line:
GO — but only if you have time. It’s not a must see. There are some interactive exhibits to experiment with how levees can fail but most of it is testimonials and history on what happened during Katrina. Upstairs there is the history of Mardi Gras with some costumes and a float on display. It’s a great place to stop if you need a break from the crowds but if you’re short on time SKIP IT. 

Overall:  ⭐️⭐️⭐️ 3/5 stars

Pros: Interesting history about Hurricane Katrina. Beautiful Mardi Gras costumes can be seen up close.
Cons: Tough for younger kids. Small museum.
