The Presbytere Reviews & Ratings

  • Very interesting place. Lots to see. Easily spent 4 hours here and could've been longer. Great exhibit on Katrina.

  • Katrina exhibit was incredible. Especially loved room were different displays had actual residents talking about their experience. Better than any tour offered!

  • Very moving exhibit that walls you through Katrina and other devastating Hurricanes. Upstairs is a very impressive Mardi Gras collection. Definitely worth a visit whilst in NOLA

  • Very moving exhibit. Brings you right there... How bad it got. Why the levees failed.

  • Wonderful museum about Katrina on the 1st floor and about Mardi Gras and beautiful costumes, crowns, septers, movies...etc
