Basin St. Station Reviews & Ratings
So cool inside, wonderful architecture to look at. I enjoyed the little bit of railroad history exhibit they have. The tour buses that run out of there are fantastic! I was only able to to stop in New Orleans for one day and I feel that I was able to get so much of it packed in with this tour.
Some of the church youth went here and enjoyed the city tour and the museum. Wonderful day with the kids.
Good to explore. Since I started my career from US-European Railway industry, it was very interesting to look around. I also liked the souvenir shop, the lady was friendly and we had chat on travel...
A great use of a retired train station. The displays were very well done and informative. They gave you some idea of things to visit. It is ‘STOP #5’ for the ‘Hop on / Hop off’. Another good value for us. However, DO NOT expect to get in and out of the restrooms quickly. Although clean and well taken care of. They are original and small.
This visitors center is the best in new orleans. The ladies there are helpful with tourist and have maps for eveyone. My favorite is the huge map on the wall. Flip a switch and it displays the areas New Orleans flooded in Katrina.
