I almost hate to write this review. The things I personally did not like about the museum are probably the things most people feel are its top qualities. The outside is beautiful. The inside could use some updating. (Again I realize this is a 1860's museum so I feel strange suggesting updates are needed). The information for each item could... More

My husband went here without me while I did a NO cooking course. He loved the museum - I had already seen the WWII museum with him and had had enough war for one week. He spent 3 hours here and was pleased he did.

My family just returned from our family vacation to NOLA! I had high hopes for this museum being a history buff. First off, the building it's in is really neat. Gorgeous to look at, lots of character and charm. I found the museum to be really small. But, for being small, they have done a decent job including cool artifacts... More

If you're into Civil war history, this is definitely a nice museum for you to go see. At the west end of Camp st, well worth the money. Lots of exhibits and great staff.

This is the oldest museum in New Orleans and well worth a visit. They get NO state or local funding, so be generous. A Confederate lover's dream. Some great artifacts, historic building, and good little gift shop.

Just a small museum, but lots of things to see. Very friendly and informative staff. Small gift shop, but very affordable items. Small entrance fee, and well worth the money.

I am not a Civil War history buff but I must truly say that this small museum housed in the original Confederate soldiers meeting hall is great. The displays and captions on the display items are not overwhelming so you can see the collection at a leasurly pace. Parking fees are horrendous, I suggest parking in the WW 2 museum... More

This activity will take a few hours but worth it. The information and exhibits have amazing detail and it's very interesting, even for non-history buffs.

Really enjoyed this museum. Reasonably priced. Had a short movie to tell about the museum and how they came to have their collection. It was very interesting and well presented.

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.
