Very personal stories of young men and their families experiencing the horrors of the Civil War. Lots of very interesting artifacts and a short film that gives you a good insight to how life was in those very hard times.

Louisiana's oldest museum conveniently located near the St Charles Street Car line and the World War II Museum. A lot of very historic historical pieces from the Civil War to view. This is a traditional historical museum which is self-paced. Changing videos available for viewing. Reasonably priced admission fee.

There were some very interesting things to see here. But just not what I had expected. Thought there would be more artifacts.

Sadly, this place needs organization and a lot more space. It's hard to pick out things of real interest

I came upon this gem quite by accident. What a find!! This is the 2nd largest collection of Confederate Civil War historical artifacts in existence. From the war through the time of Union occupation of New Orleans, this place is crammed full of displays and accounts of the local events that happened back then. It cost me a whopping $5... More

Great history of the Confederacy Louisiana centered. You get a great sense of the devotion and honor of the men of the South. One unit entered the war with 485 men and surrendered at Appomattox with 42 men and no officers. Admission is $8 and it takes about 60-90 minutes for a quick tour. Longer if you are a devotee...

Lots to read and see. Many authentic uniforms and armoury. The personal letters gave a great insight into the period and some were very touching.

This was a nice little museum. There are several displays of artifacts from the Civil War, many of them personal items from veterans of the conflict. The museum was started at a time when there were still living veterans so the artifacts seem more poignant. You can see the whole museum in about an hour or so and the entrance... More

I have visited the Civil War museum twice on different trips to New Orleans. The building is a beauty in its own right. But there is a lot of history inside as well. Many displays of actual uniforms, gear, and everyday items from that time period. They even have jewelry for sell made from antiques buttons and other items. You... More

Staying in Arts District / Warehouse District

Neighbourhood Profile
Arts District / Warehouse District
Once a thriving industrial zone, today this district is home to a buzzing arts scene with an amazing assortment of galleries, boutiques, and studios having moved in and set up shop throughout the disused warehouses for which the area is so well known. Much of the art you'll come across here is local in scope, ownership and inspiration. However, among the many old brick warehouses are modern structures of steel and glass housing large-scale cultural institutions of national prominence such as the National World War II Museum, the Contemporary Arts Center, and the Ogden Museum of Southern Art. Just as eye catching as what’s on view inside the galleries and museums is the chance to see your ship come in at the Julia Street Cruise Terminal, which serves as a wistful reminder of the city’s historic maritime prominence.
