Madame John's Legacy is one of the many buildings/museums that comprise the Louisiana State Museum system. While most of the attractions charge a modest admission, Madame John's Legacy offers free admission -- making it a worthwhile stop on any visit to New Orleans. The architecture alone makes this building worth a look, as it is one of the oldest buildings in New Orleans, and one of the rare wooden structures that escaped the great fire of 1795. During our visit, Madame John's Legacy was hosting a display of Newcomb Pottery. The pieces were lovely, and it was interesting to read about the history of Newcomb College and its female pottery artists.
Another reviewer mentioned that the site was scheduled to close at the end of this exhibit. I hadn't heard that, but I do hope they keep it open, as it's certainly worth a visit. The building is located in the heart of the French Quarter, just a couple of blocks from Jackson Square.
