The Old U . S Mint, New Orleans Reviews - Write a Review
Wonderful almost hidden museum go check it out. Also a host to many festivals. Great AC if you need to cool down
The mint was very interesting. It not only showed you how the money was made and the equipment that was used, but it also has a Jazz museum on the second floor as well. The museum is free, and it does not take very long to go through it, about 1.5 - 2 hours, if you take time to read all the exhibits. Also a very nice place to go to get out of the heat.
Histories of money and Jazz music under one roof. We loved this National Park. We even enjoyed a live concert. The Ranger in the gift shop encouraged use of the piano. A fun visit all around.
This is a great little museum in the center of New Orleans. I enjoyed touring the structure and learning about its history. It doesn't take much time to see the whole thing.
Not overly impressive. Because we went to the Louisiana State Mouseum first we both got tickets to all 5 museums at 20% discount for a total of 30 some dollars
