Built around the mid 18th century by French Colonial engineers, the Old Ursuline Convent is the oldest building in the Mississippi valley. Over the years, the convent served as a school, arch bishop’s residence and an office of Louisiana Legislature. Today the convent houses a small museum and along with the St. Louis Cathedral and St. Mary's Church, it functions as the Catholic Cultural Heritage Center of the Archdiocese of New Orleans.
Keeping with its French Colonial design, the building’s cross ventilation design and simple yet elegant and regal architecture, remains to be its highlight.

Old Ursuline Convent, New Orleans Reviews - Write a Review
This building is important and special the floors caught my attention! Also the different types of fruits in the garden
Bartended a wedding there. Smoothest, most professional wedding I've ever worked.
This is an amazing Historic Site. The history of the Ursulines in New Orleans is wonderful!
Been wanting to see this for years now, so we took some time to do the self guided tour. There is a lot of history involving the religious orders of sisters doing good works for the city. The tour includes the attached church of st.mary which is very beautiful. This is well worth the visit.
Absolutely gorgeous. ST. Mary's is gorgeous.
