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 - Write a Review
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.
Very nice building, free to enter, not a long of interpretive information.
With the right reflective mindset and a curiousity in transporting yourself into the past, you will enjoy studying this home with a slow walk.
Very nice, especially for free. Cool architecture with revolving exhibits.
Really well kept original french building! found it very interesting
