This museum is small but houses quite a bit for its size. I found the flags and civil war weapons the most interesting.

This was OK but less than expected. Over priced for the amount of exhibits. What they have is interesting but they don't have much.

Not a huge museum by any stretch, but it has enough interesting info and artifacts to make it a worthwhile stop. It's just across the street from the WWII museum, so it's easy to tack this on to a day adventure in the area. I think it was only about $7 admission as well, so not too expensive.

Second time in New Orleans, and unlike my first trip with perfect weather and blue skies, the second day this time around was a complete washout- thunderstorms and all. Not wanting to stay in the hotel all day and not wanting to go to the WWII museum, which Google indicated was busier than normal, we found this museum and thought... More

This beautiful building houses an impressive display of rare Civil War artifacts. Original writings of Jefferson Davis, rare and obscure flags, banners and uniforms in addition to black and white photographs make this a small but vibrant addition to Civil War history.

Allow about 2 to 3 hours to tour. Info, flags, displays feature LA CSA units and there experiences, leaders and battles. Very well written bios of the CSA principals. Extensive displays and information with CSA soldier gear. Cost $8 per adult.

To get a feeling for the South, take in the Memorial Hall. It walks you through the confederate side of the war, which was a bloody one. Lots of information, Very little said about slavery, which I think would be a centre piece to reconciliation, but all in all worthwhile visit.

Staying in Arts District / Warehouse District

Neighbourhood Profile
Arts District / Warehouse District
Once a thriving industrial zone, today this district is home to a buzzing arts scene with an amazing assortment of galleries, boutiques, and studios having moved in and set up shop throughout the disused warehouses for which the area is so well known. Much of the art you'll come across here is local in scope, ownership and inspiration. However, among the many old brick warehouses are modern structures of steel and glass housing large-scale cultural institutions of national prominence such as the National World War II Museum, the Contemporary Arts Center, and the Ogden Museum of Southern Art. Just as eye catching as what’s on view inside the galleries and museums is the chance to see your ship come in at the Julia Street Cruise Terminal, which serves as a wistful reminder of the city’s historic maritime prominence.
