The Hermann-Grima House is a gem in the New Orleans French Quarter. Built in 1831 by Samuel Hermann, this Vieux Carre home is one of the only Federal architectural style buildings in the area. Through ongoing preservation, this historic house museum offers a rare glimpse into life in the 18th century in the French Quarter. This property boasts the only original working open-hearth kitchen in the French Quarter along with an original stable on property. Our hidden courtyard is full of historically accurate roses and other flowering plants too. Learn about the Hermann and Grima families, the enslaved residents, daily urban life, and New Orleans history while on a guided tour, offered six days a week (Thurs-Tues). For group tours and more, please contact us for details.

This is a 19th century home located in the French Quarter. It is very interesting since it has several unique features like a rare remaining stables house. It also has a more “northern” style with a symmetrical exterior and centered front door. It is lovely...More

If you are an architecture and/or history buff, this is a good place to step back into the mid-nineteenth century and see how the well-to-do lived in that period. Guided tours only

Bobbie did a great job showing us the house. She was very pleasant and answered all our questions. She let us take extra time to look at things we were curious about

Tour guide was knowledgeable of home, family history and architecture. Wonderful time would recommend visit as it goes beyond the party atmosphere of the French Quarter.

This is a beautiful and interesting look into how people lived in the 1800s. The house is fully furnished--even changed up for each season. Docents give a lot of interesting details about the family that owned the house and life in the nineteenth century. Seeing...More

When I visited, they were preparing for a fundraising dinner. They still use the kitchens to cook food in the traditional way (pre-electric). It was very interesting. I had what amounted to a private one-hour tour because I was the only person who showed up...More

French Quarter
A small and teeming network of laissez-faire living
lounged out on the balmy banks of the Mighty
Mississippi, the French Quarter has long been a port
of call for folks in search of a good time and a great
story. Perpetually inebriated Bourbon Street runs
across its midriff like a strand of cheap ribbon tied
around an otherwise rather pretty and impressively
well-kept vintage dress. Throughout the rest of the

It's under 16.00 per person (15-something). It's a really good tour and gives you so much historical details about the.e house, the family, the era, and about New Orleans. I highly recommend this one.

Not when I went, but you are free to ask the guide questions. We were the only ones on our tour, so it felt more custom to our individual interests. I'd email them to see if you could focus on her in your tour.
