The museum consists of elaborate Mardi Gras costumes, including 13 of Mrs. Wells’ queen costumes, one of her mother’s, one of her daughter’s, as well as four king’s costumes worn by Count Arnaud.

Mardi Gras Museum, New Orleans Reviews

Google+
  • Not a museum, really, just a small gallery of badly maintained costumes. It was interesting to see, but I would have been outraged if they had charged money for it. Most of the pictures posted to this location are actually from a larger museum down the road.

  • Helen was an amazing tour guide. We learned the history of the indigenous peoples, their costumes and meaning of Mardi Gras!

  • "Museum" is a bit of a stretch. It is basically one room above a restaurant, with some dresses and costumes in glass displays and a bunch of photographs hanging on the wall. Yes it is a nice display, but it should not take you more than five minutes to complete your self-guided tour. 95% of the photos attached to this location are from a separate location called MARDI GRAD WORLD, which is down by the port and that is where you see all the floats are made and stored.

  • It has so much potential. But the visit is just a video and the storage of past events

  • Cool stuff
