The museum is accommodated in a Greek Revival residence and contains paintings, 19th century photographs, Jules Lion lithographs, sculptures and other artefacts along with rare documents.

This was exactly the kind of place I hoped to see during my trip to New Orleans. I love history and it's the stories of the people of cities that interest me the most. Our tour guide was SO knowledgeable and the artifacts and exhibits in the space are priceless. Thank you for offering this space, this is a MUST SEE for all visitors to this great city.
Very interesting collection and story but need to think about delivery - how to present it a bit more slowly and give audience time to digest it.
Eye-opening history of Free People of Color (FPC) in New Orleans and Louisiana generally. The subject merits far more physical space. That said, our docent gave a pithy, sophisticated and entertaining tour. With thanks and respect-
