The His­toric New Or­leans Col­lec­tion

Where New Orleans - - EDITOR'S ITINERARY -

With its nu­mer­ous French Quar­ter prop­er­ties, hun­dreds of hold­ings and var­i­ous ex­hibits ex­plor­ing the city’s 300-year back­story, the His­toric New Or­leans Col­lec­tion (p. 52) is a must-visit for lovers of lo­cal lore. Its free Louisiana His­tory Gal­leries serve as the per­fect primer. Di­vided among dif­fer­ent time pe­ri­ods, each room of­fers in­sight into New Or­leans’ evo­lu­tion through a wide range of ar­ti­facts and ephemera, from hand-hewn cy­press logs and early Mardi Gras mem­o­ra­bilia to the first Jaz­zfest poster and a shovel used at the Su­per­dome’s ground­break­ing. Friendly do­cents are on hand to pro­vide de­tails and an­swer ques­tions, while a free smart­phone tour helps you ex­plore on your own.
