Degas House, New Orleans Reviews
This was a great experience, we had breakfast, very delicious and many choices. The lady that cooked and served was very nice and accommodating. Then we had time to learn about and tour the property. Our guide Randy is very knowledgeable, funny and pleasant.
Micey was our tour guide and was wonderful. My wife and I along with my son and his girlfriend toured the house/museum. The staff we spoke with were friendly and seemed genuinely excited about keeping the history of Degas alive. I must admit, I didn't know much about him and his connection to New Orleans but Micey was awesome. She took the time to tell a story that made history come to life. The museum is also a bed and breakfast. I've stayed in the Garden District for years but it was so nice to be just north of the Quarter and have a peaceful neighborhood. We just sat and enjoyed the tree lined street. Just may change my accommodations next year.
Went of Edgar Degas House Gourmet Creole Breakfast and Tour Hosted by the Great-Grand Nieces of Edgar Degas or a Global Winning Docent named Randy.....The Made to Order Creole Breakfast of Bananas Foster Pandu or French Toast with a Bloody Mary was delicious. My Friend had the Creole Omelette with vegetable and homemade creole sauce with a Mimosas. But the best part is that our guide was Micey Moyer, one of the great-grand nieces of Degas and one of the last Degas Painters, unless her Grandson, take a heavier interest in painting. Who knew Edgar Degas had an American Connection! He painted 18 world famous paintings will visiting his family in New Orleans during 1872 and 1873. Worth the trip.
Did a guided tour today. The house and the art are both really cool. The tour was a little bizarre. It could use some editing. We watched a video at the beginning that was 30 minutes long and unnecessary. Overall we enjoyed it though.
I was there for a wedding. They have a nice area in the back for a small and intimate ceremony. I don't know anything about the rooms or staying the night since I was there for the ceremony. Though the staff was very friendly and helpful.
