I took my three kids to the Houmas House. Our tour guide was friendly and engaging, even allowing for my ten-year-old to play the 1901 Steinway in the Gentleman's room. That for sure was the highlight of our visit! Thank you.

We ate at Houmas House restaurant then joined the house tour. The lady leading the tour was from France and she was very knowledgeable and interesting.

We took a bus tour from New Orleans to Houmas House. There is a short film about the history of the house. Guided house tours are a included. We had an excellent mint julep in the tiny Turtle Bar.
