Historic New Orleans Collection, New Orleans Reviews
Its a great little slice of the history of the area. Its a fairly small museum which is great, its not overwhelming. However its a source with a lot of good historical information. I really enjoyed it.
The Williams Residence guided and self-guided tours each provided fantastic views into the lifestyle of the rich which was truly fabulous for its time. When in that house, after having seen a few movies from the era, you can easily imagine how everything would have worked and the comings and goings of staff as they attended to the Williams family and their guests. The tour felt well coordinated and our guide was knowledgeable and happy to answer the questions that came up. Please note that this is not a museum where everything is protected in display cases. You will in some cases be walking through and around the actual artifacts they have no issue reminding you that certain things can not be touched. I highly recommend a visit when you are in New Orleans.
Great museum that I didn't even know existed until this past week. Definitely worth the time if you're in the area.
