Jackson Barracks dates back to the Jackson administration in the 1830s (hence the name) and this museum traces the Louisiana military history going back even farther than that and, of course, brings it up to today. When you walk into the museum, the first thing...More

Great plane exhibits in the courtyard, kids will enjoy checking them out, the museum is small but a great local free visit that's educational for kids.

Stop in and see how the National Guard has impacted the people of New Orleans and Louisiana. The displays are very well done and show the resiliency of the Guard.
