On the first floor is an exhibit about the devastation of Katrina to the area and it helps people to feel how truly bad it was for the locals. I thought I knew all of the facts of the damage from watching TV every day but I absolutely didn't have a clue as to how seriously it hurt the people, their lives, homes, and businesses. It goes into detail with TV coverage before, during, and after the hurricane, audio and visuals of how the levees are being rebuilt, and interactive stations which answer various questions people might have. Upstairs is a fantastic exhibit about the history of Mardi Gras. Children as well as adults enjoyed looking at the costumes, the pictures of the floats, and different fringe Mardi Gras in the area. I went here and then to the Cabildo on the same day since they are near each other. It was worth the long walk from where I was staying.
