  • This museum was nice but in my opinion it didn't quite live up to the high reviews I had read. Perhaps I would have had a different experience if I hadn't been there with my three- and six-year-old kids who didn't really enjoy it that much (fortunately, they were free thought). There were a couple interactive exhibits that they enjoyed, but it would have been nice to have even more hands-on activities like that. There were some neat historical artifacts and paintings, and the museum helped give us a greater understanding of the history of New Orleans. Lots of it was pretty text-heavy, though, so it was difficult to absorb as much as I would have liked while also keeping an eye on my kids. The building itself is gorgeous, and for anyone interested in the history behind New Orleans, I recommend it.
  • This building is a cornerstone of US history, and an absolute must for history buffs passing through New Orleans. We like to include a museum stop in the cities we pass through to learn more about the area. The Cabildo absolutely delivered. The Cabildo was the seat of the Spanish gov in New Orleans, site of the Louisiana Purchase Ceremonies, and where Plessy v. Ferguson took place. Incredible history.
