We stopped in and the people were so nice!! We saw floats and all kinds of stuff, they gave us beads and a cute bobble head doll. We love Mardi Gras so this was just a wonderful time for us!!!

People running the museum needed reservations to see the tiny place. Then it rained the day we were supposed to go so we blew it off. Half the museum is outside with the floats.

No information other than price of admission available and although the gates were open the doors were locked and noone was there to ask when we could tour.

Happened by this. It was neat seeing costumes and floats up close. Fun way to kill a little time and see some history to Mardi Gras.
