Went here with my wife and two 12 year olds. Our favorite wax museum of the several we've seen. The quality of the displays is astonishingly good--apparently they were made by a craftsman in France. You learn about the history of New Orleans, important parts...More

Boring, lame, just a waste. The wax figures look like middle grade students did them, the plaques are not kept up so some you can't read and the whole thing was not worth it.

The museum has a really bad odor when you enter, but it's not that expensive. The stories w/the was figures is great and covers almost everything I heard on the historic tours. It even has a horror section which was neat.

I can't believe this museum is not advertised more. It ranks right up there with Conferdate, Cabildo, and Presbytere. We only found out about it from the waitstaff at our hotel.

French Quarter
A small and teeming network of laissez-faire living
lounged out on the balmy banks of the Mighty
Mississippi, the French Quarter has long been a port
of call for folks in search of a good time and a great
story. Perpetually inebriated Bourbon Street runs
across its midriff like a strand of cheap ribbon tied
around an otherwise rather pretty and impressively
well-kept vintage dress. Throughout the rest of the

Response from MuseeConti | Property representative |
The Conti street location permanently closed in January 2016. We moved the wax figures and larger set pieces into storage and hope to re-open the museum at a new location by late 2018.
