We'd read about Musee Conti in a guidebook of attractions in New Orleans. We thought it would be some cheesy celebrity-centric wax museum, but were pleasantly surprised that it was far from that. It's on a quiet street away from crowds and other attractions. On the day we visited, we were literally the only two people in the museum for the entire time we were there (about an hour and half)! Now, we counted this solitude as a plus--no whining kids, no pushing and shoving, just a leisurely stroll through the exhibits. There were push-buttons on what looked like speakers, but they didn't work for some reason. It was okay, though, because each exhibit had a written description of the scene depicted. The wax figures were convincing, and we learned quite a bit in a short time about New Orleans history. It was a relaxing diversion on a hot spring afternoon!

Pros: Uncrowded and interesting

.

This is a fun thing to do one time. After that it's a bit dull and silly. Take the kids or out of town guests and it makes it a bit more interesting.

Tucked in a back corner of the French Quarter, I lived in New Orleans for 20 years and never knew it was there! It was amazing to find this little gem within the city! The Currator was wonderfully abliging and everything was so interesting! Definitly something different in this town!
