What is there to do?

The New Orleans Jazz Museum is special for two reasons, the first because it celebrates jazz in the very city that it was born, and second because it's located in the Old US Mint, which is a historical landmark in itself!

You can't walk down Bourbon Street or Frenchman Street in The Big Easy without hearing trumpets, singing, and incredibly catchy jazz music playing all around you, and that is because you are in the very place that jazz came about, so why not learn about it!

Within the museum you'll find dynamic interactive exhibitions, as well as multigenerational educational programming, and even musical performances!

The music that the great city of New Orleans made famous, is explored in all forms, and you get a front row seat.

The New Orleans Jazz Museum is located in the intersection of the French Quarter and the Frenchman Street live music corridor, so the perfect location for such a tribute.

Kids, are you ready to dance your way through your next family day out, and immerse yourselves in one of the greatest forms of music ever to exist? Get those bodies ready to bounce, because the New Orleans Jazz Museum is calling!
