Mardi Gras World Or Festival, New Orleans Reviews

  • Mardi Gras World is a great place to tour and host events! For those visiting the city, take some time to tour where Mardi Gras is made. Kern Studios has been part of Mardi Gras since the beginning, and supporting local artists who build the beautiful floats for Mardi Gras is important to preserve the history of Carnival. If you're looking to host an event, Mardi Gras can provide your guests with an incredibly unique experience. We had our wedding reception at Grand Oaks Mansion (part of River City Venues), and could not have imagined a more wonderful place to celebrate with our friends and family.

  • This was such a cool place to visit when we were in New Orleans. My kids especially loved the tour which included detailed information provided about the various floats and characters. There is a 15 minute film in the beginning of the tour. It’s educational but I would have been cool without having to watch it. I would definitely recommend a visit here. It costs to get in and it costs to park on the lot if you drive there.

  • If you are taking a cruise and only have a few hours to see New Orleans, I'd suggest making Mardi Gras World your stop because it's a short taxi cab drive away from the cruise ship ports. I got to see floats while they were in the process of being made for the upcoming year's Mardi Gras parade. Clean restrooms and a gift shop for you to take a souvenir home. If you are driving, park in the parking lot directly across from Mardi Gras World. If you get there first thing in the morning, right as Mardi Gras World opens, you get an early bird special. I think I paid the parking attendant $5 to park my car. If you have kids/teens, this is a neat spot to take lots of pictures with them standing next to huge floats! Heck, if you have a date- take her to Mardi Gras World! This was a fun place to visit!

  • We went for an after hours even, so we didn't get to see it in its full glory, but it was still impressive! Being able to see the craftsmanship up close was amazing. I never realized just how massive the vehicles and decorations for themselves are. Will have to make a trip back during business hours to see it all in action.

  • What a great place. Incredible to see the artists at work creating masterpieces out of simple materials. Fair price for entry and a good half days entertainment. Bit of a trek to get there but there is a shuttle bus. Great to see some familiar works and hear history and current tales of the company.
