Madame John's Legacy - Review
Built on the burnt grounds of a former house, Madame John's Legacy residential house was built in 1788 and is a fine example of classic 18th century Louisiana-Creole architecture and design. The name of the house was inspired from a character of George Washington Cable’s 1874 short story Tite Poulette.
The residential complex consists of three parts- the main house, the kitchen and the two-story dependency.
Take a walk round the whole complex to travel back in time and see a part of Louisiana that would be otherwise lost.

Madame John's Legacy, New Orleans Reviews
This is a great historical building to visit in New Orleans! It's a free museum!! Most of the museums in New Orleans are not free. While there are not a lot of exhibits in this Museum there is some information about the history of the house the architecture and uses for each of the rooms. While we were there there was also a really great exhibit on the Newcomb College Pottery school with lots of different examples of the different styles of pottery the school put out. I I think this museum is not to be missed. If you're walking around the French quarter then you absolutely should go here!
Very nice building, free to enter, not a lot of interpretive information.
Great place to go! Very interesting and incredible.
Free museum to look around. One of only three remaining buildings from the French period. The listed hours are only a guideline, if no one has come in for a few hours they close up. I don't blame them, to keep this place free of charge to enter, certain things like 'listed hours' will be different. If they are closed, please don't be upset. There aren't to many things to do in New Orleans for free.
Self guided tour but very interesting
