  • This is an absolutely incredible experience and a must see if you are interested in authentic New Orleans culture. The owner Ronald is an incredible man, as knowledgeable as he is generous. Call ahead to make an appointment between 10am-4pm and come with questions. No entrance fee but be sure to leave a donation to support this amazing collection of local artifacts.

  • This is a MUST SEE when you come to NOLA! He's 1 of the Ninth wards' Katrina survivors & spoke up for the area's residents when people were ignoring them. Call before you go as the museum is in a small building behind his home. If you're coming for the Essence festival or a HBCU bowl game please support 1 of our own by stopping by. He gave me a Big 9 S & P club coconut!

  • Stopped here on a Confederacy of Cruisers bike tour which I also recommend. Ron was a really neat person to meet who has a really interesting collection of items surrounding New Orleans culture and his place in it. Definitely a major highlight of our trip.

  • This was a wonderfully personal experience. We had the opportunity to hear first hand accounts of Mardi Gras Indian history and more.

  • It is a little difficult to write this review and only give two stars. If I was writing solely based on the service that Mr. Lewis is performing for the culture of the city, and the place that he holds in its esteem, I would give 5 stars. However, I have to write this review based on our experience as tourists who frequently visit New Orleans and who are very interested in its history and culture. Of course, this is not a typical museum, but is in Mr. Lewis's home that he graciously opens up to guests for just an optional donation. Overall though, we found our experience to be pretty disappointing. We were expecting to see a lot of artifacts, but also to be regaled with stories of personal experiences and history. Maybe we where just there on a bad day, but we were offered limited information, and exceptionally brief answers to questions. It is a very difficult museum to navigate without guidance, and we where left to just kind of stare at many artifacts that we did not know or understand the significance of. We left the museum with more questions than new information. A quick note about the Museum's location. It is easy enough to get a cab there from other parts of the city, but very very difficult to get a cab back. There is a bus that runs down St. Claude Ave, but I'm not sure about how frequently it runs. You can actually walk back to the Bywater by crossing the St. Claude Ave bridge on foot. It looks like pedestrians are not allowed, but if you follow the street to the right parallel to where the bridge begins there will eventually be a set of steps up to a pedestrian walkway. We felt perfectly safe walking during the day, but there is not really much around so it can at times be a little uncomfortable. Overall, although we are glad to have met Mr. Lewis and to have seen the museum, I can't say that we would go back or necessarily recommend this museum for most people visiting New Orleans.
