About Old Ursuline Convent, New Orleans

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.

  • The structure is beautiful. The church itself is as well. The lawn and the inside are well-maintained. However, I expected a little more historical information of the convent in the museum rather than just history of Catholicism. Despite this, I do recommend it for its statues, sanctuary, and staircase.

  • Truly a massive time capsule which preserves the atmosphere from the 18th and 19th centuries. We entered the garden outside and already we sensed the 18th century French presence. The architecture and perfectly manicured hedges are like a fragment of a French palace. Inside the cathedral and complex we joined Phil's tour. He is insanely knowledgeable about the history of New Orleans and the building. The tour focused on the cathedral and Christianity. The stain glass windows are marvelous especially when the light shines at the right angle. There was also a short movie on the TV which was informative with nice background music. The outdoor courtyard had magnificent sculptures of Christian characters. Pleasant, apparently quite a few couples wed here. Overall I highly recommend dropping by and exploring the museum.

  • 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!
